Hi ronnell williams ,

The easiest way to use Laravel on Windows will be by installing Laravel via Composer. These instructions should work: https://laravel.com/docs/9.x#your-first-laravel-project. You will find other instructions that involve Docker, however I do not recommend following these if you are not already familiar with Docker because it introduces a lot of unnecessary complexity.
