Where to enter git commands?

I’m pretty sure this will be a basic question for a lot of people, but here goes:

I started going through the book “Pro Git”, and it says to start by setting my username and email using the following lines:

  • Disable progress indication in git command line
  • Cloning a Git repo into a new repo - without commit history
  • Git Alias to chain add, commit, pull, push?
  • Command to recursively remove all .svn directories on Windows
  • Is there a command line tool to show git status in realtime?
  • Is running git update-index --refresh from PS1 prompt safe?
  • $ git config --global user.name "John Doe"

    $ git config --global user.email johndoe@example.com

    Where do I type these lines? I tried typing them into command prompt and the git GUI, but I’ve had no success. I’m using Windows 7.

    I assuming you’ve probably installed the windows git from http://git-scm.com/download/win

    With the very defaults that won’t put git on your command prompt.

    Use ‘git bash’ either through the start menu or right clicking in the folder.

    Press ‘Start’ button in Windows, type ‘cmd’ in the search field on the bottom of menu. There you have the command line console. Try to type git --version, if show something like ‘git version 1.8.0.2’, you’re ready to input all the commands here.

    For those command you wrote like$ git xxxxxx, just ignore the $ sign of begin, it’s something like C:\> for unix like OSs.
