Using Windows

Configuring Git

After installing Git on Windows, it won't automatically be added to your PATH variable. To add it to your PATH:

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Click System
  3. Find and click Advanced system settings
  4. Click Environment Variables
  5. Under User Variables find Path and click Edit
  6. Select New and add the full paths to your bin and cmd folders where Git has been installed. Depending on how you installed Git, you would normally expect to find these folders under:

    1. C:\Program Files\Git\bin
    2. C:\Program Files\Git\cmd

    When finished, click OK

    Update Path variable

{warning} If you installed Git and added it to your PATH variable with Docker Desktop already opened, you'll have to close and reopen it for the new PATH to be read.
