Just one step
To install git on Windows, download and install via .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 the following into Git Bash:
git config --global user.name "Your Name" git config --global user.email "your email"
You can test that they've successfully been set by typing:
git config --global user.name git config --global user.email
For each line above, it should print the settings that you chose.
