Where do the Jekyll Ruby Gem files go on Windows?

I managed to install Jekyll on Windows via Git Powershell. Yay! :)

But I can't find the files on Windows? Am I missing something? Am I supposed to be able to find them? :)

I'm on Windows 7.

Not a Windows user, but I believe typing "gem environment" in your command line should pull up the path. This link might help: http://guides.rubygems.org/command-reference/#gem-environment

Hey Jonathan,

I found your answer: for me (I'm on Windows 10), jekill goes to my Ruby library. The complete path to jekill should be for you: OS/Ruby23x64/lib/ruby/gems/2.3.0/gems.

Thanks to a very simple research with explorer, I find your solution in 10 seconds :). I hope I help you.
