Installing and using Git on your computer
- Windows: Git is not pre-installed on Windows machines. Check out our video on Git installation for Windows. Be sure to check the Teacher's Notes on the video page for additional notes, as the installation process has changed slightly since the video was recorded.
- Mac: Every Mac comes with Git pre-installed! To access it, all you need to do is open a terminal with a Bash prompt. You can find instructions for opening the Terminal program in this Treehouse Blog post.
- Linux: Linux systems also come with Git pre-installed. If you're running Linux, we assume you already know how to get to a terminal, but if you're stuck, click the Get Help button on this page to ask for help in the Treehouse Community forum.
