Introduction To Node.js

Installing & Running Node.js: Windows

  1. Visit and download the LTS version of Node.js for Windows by clicking the “Windows Installer” option.
  2. Run the downloaded Node.js .msi Installer - accept the license and select the folder to install.
  • This step requires Administrator privileges, and you may need to authenticate
  1. To ensure Node.js has been installed, run node -v in your terminal - you should get something like v15.3.0
  2. Update your version of npm with npm install npm --global

Congratulations — you’ve now got Node.js installed, and are ready to start building!
