Learn Python the Hard Way EX 0 HELP!

I am new to Python and am currently taking an intro course for school. I am on exercise 0 (the setup) for Windows and running into a wall as far as the set up go. Am I supposed to be making the directory in powershell or my command prompt? The exercises also calls for me to go into Notepad++ to make test.txt in my stuff and I do not know what I am doing at all.

Side note: I have never had any experience in coding let alone Python so this is all new and confusing for me! I genuinely want to learn but afraid to fail the course!

hi you do commands in powershell.
but if you have not done Appendix A, you should start there.
