Hello I a beginner at coding. Where do I start that would make the most sense while on Windows 10?
Hello I am transitioning into learning new languages and would like some professional advice on where to start to best learn to code and running new programs. I am currently working on a Windows 10 HP...and I have a iPad mini...
I have a 42 next to my profile and I feel a bit that I should be watching other videos for some reason, possible because I am working on a PC....and I keep seeing instructor use an Apple... Thanks in advance.

We were all "new to coding" at one point. :)
Yes, most teachers use Apple, as it is the most popular among Coders, but Windows can be just as powerful. As you move on, you will notice some differences, but you should be okay.
Keep Coding! :)

whether you use linux, windows, unix or mac os x, it doesnt actually matter. There is only one thing you can do with mac os x that you can't do with others. so, as long as you're not currently planning to learn swift - the language used to build ios and mac os x apps, then you're fine.
as for where to start, that really depends on your end goals. but the two most popular starting places are
python - which is one of the easiest programming languages to learn, and its a general purpose programming language so it can be used for many things, from server side programming to building games.

I am new too, I started at the beginning of July. I have started on html and css courses and I am on a track called "Web Design" so I would suggest that to begin with.
