None of this works. Command prompt did not come up only a black screen with a couple of words on it and when I right clicked on it nothing happened
error in statement.
In my Windows version it should be

THIS DOESN’T WORK, DAM-IT!
I’ve been hard at it for well over 4 and hours trying to find it, but my Apple Mac doesn’t seem to have a Windows Search Bar!
If you have an apple device you cant even do it you have to have windows.
