To open a terminal window, press the “Windows key” and the letter “R”.

You will now see the “Run Dialog”. Type “cmd”, and press “OK”.

A terminal window will appear. Think of it as a text version of Windows Explorer; it will let you navigate to different directories on your computer, look at the files that they contain, and run any programs that you want to. This is all done by typing commands into the window.
