How do you enter all that stuff ?


The first step for both macOS and Windows is opening either Terminal (macOS) or Cmd (Windows).

If you’re on macOS, you can quickly access Terminal by clicking on the Spotlight search icon in the top-right of the Mac screen and then searching for Terminal.

If you’re on Windows, the easiest way to find Cmd is to search using the Start menu much like searching with Spotlight.

Once you have either Terminal or Cmd open, you can start entering the commands from the appropriate section of that help topic.

The easiest way to run the commands is to:

  1. Copy the command
  2. Go to Terminal/Cmd.exe
  3. Paste the command by right-clicking on Windows or pressing Command + V on macOS
  4. Press Enter
  5. Repeat 1-4 for any other commands

You need to be specific.

What part do I copy, everything starting with Run all the way down to 5? Or do I do line 3 enter, 4 enter, and 5 enter?
