    1. Setup Git

    Where to find your command line
    For Windows:

    - In the Search or Run line, type cmd (short for command), and press Enter.

    For MacOS:
    - Hit the keyboard shortcut ctrl+SPACE to open Spotlight search

    Download Git at your computer
    Git might already be installed in your computer! To check that, do the following: open your command line,
    type git and press ENTER. If Git exists in your system, this should display a message about the usage
    of Git. If not you should download Git.

    Go to the link that corresponds to your laptop's OS and follow the instructions in order to download Git.

    After downloading Git open your command line prompt and type the following command: git

    If Git has been properly installed, this should display a message about the usage of Git.
