Here, you’ll find the instructions to install Go on a Windows computer.

Open the MSI file you downloaded and follow the prompts to install Go.

After installing, you will need to close and reopen any open command prompts so that changes to the environment made by the installer are reflected at the command prompt.

To verify that you've installed Go, type "cmd" in the Start Menu’s search bar and then press the Enter key. Then execute the following command:

go version

If the command prints the installed version of Go, you’re good to go.

You Are All Set

That’s it. You are now ready to use Go in your system.
