How to Open a Console | Pluckeye

What is a Windows Console?

Note that “console”, “terminal”, and “command prompt” are used interchangeably because they all mean the same thing. Here is what one looks like (one will look slightly different on your computer):

Windows Key + R

Press and hold the Windows Key and then hit the “r” key. A Run window should appear. In it, type “cmd.exe” and press enter.

Alternatively, you can use the start menu as shown in the following video.

What is a Mac Terminal?
