This guide will walk through Git installation on windows.

Download Git from here. It will get you an installer. In my case I got Git-2.19.1-64-bit.exe. Run the installer. In most of the steps you won't change the default option.

Select location:

I selected Notepad++ here:

Click on Install:

Click on Finish.

Now open windows cmd and try git:

C:\Users\Joe>git --version
git version
