Cannot clone a repository in terminal window.

For some reason, my command prompt and power shell do not recognize the git clone command or just the git command. I was wanting to learn to clone thru a terminal window in addition to using Sourcetree. I'd appreciate an answer on why it will not work in a terminal window. Thank you.

Hello @Robert Damian,

Welcome to the Community.

Can you give more information on what you get when you try the command? A dump or screenshot of what you see in the terminal would be very useful.


Hi Danlil.

Please see attached screenshot.

Thank you for your help.



I'm afraid the screenshot didn't get through, can you please re-upload it?


I have uploaded twice and the message does not get delivered.

I believe I found the problem. I didn't actually download git. I am also working in GitHub. When I went to clone, it seemed to work.
