I need help with the command line

I am doing a course on the command line and on it it says that the command line should start with a $. Every time I am trying to use it it all ways says that I am doing something wrong or something like that. It would be really helpful if someone could explain to me how to set up a command line properly on windows. Thanks:slight_smile:

What the course teaches is BASH (born again shell), which is for *nix, not windows

Cygwin provides bash and other tools for windows

and if you have windows 10, you can install linux subsystem
