How to install Git Bash in Windows

Educative Answers Team

Git Bash is a source control management system for Windows. It allows users to type Git commands that make source code management easier through versioning and commit history. Bash is a Linux-based command line (that has been ported over to Windows) while Shell is a native Windows command line.
