Hi Dipika, you can either use the virtual machine console offered through the course or you can use your Run program instead. Here's a quick lesson in case you don't use the VM console: http://www.digitalcitizen.life/run-window-windows-7-why-use-it-anymore

Console/command line is used for a wide variety of tasks in front end work. I'd recommend doing some additional Google searches into the topic. Here's a search to help get you started.

I use Git Bash which can be downloaded directly from github as command line for Windows. To my knowledge Mac comes with a pretty good power shell but I am not a fan of the one that comes with Windows. Gitbash is most likely the closest thing you will find to what we're using in this program.
