Just one step

To install git on Windows, download and install this .exe.

Note: It will ask you a bunch of questions. It is a good idea to accept the defaults.

Once that is installed, launch Git Bash by doing:

  • Start -> All Programs -> Git -> Git Bash

Set your user name and email

You'll also want to tell git your name and email address. To do this, type:

   git config --global user.name "your-user-name"
   git config --global user.email "your email"

You can test that they've successfully been set by typing:

   git config --global user.name "your-user-name"
   git config --global user.email
