Following are the steps required to install the GIT on Windows O.S.

 1) Open the following link in any browser https://git-scm.com/download/win Download will start automatically , if it does not start click on "click here to download manually"  hyperlink. 


2) Once Download is complete click on .exe file.

 3) Click on Run if the security warning window pops up. 

 4) Follow through the default installation process until you get to “Choosing the default editor used by Git”. The default “Use Vim” may be too complex to use, if you are not familiar with Vim. Choose Nano or Notepad++ or visualstudiocode which is easier to use.
