Step 1

Go to your preferred browser and search install flutter. Then from the search results, open this link

Once you have reached there, search for a blue button that looks like this. Screenshot (114).png

Tap on it and your download will begin. This is a zip file. So you will have to extract it once the download finishes. Once you have successfully extracted the SDK, you will need to copy the path to the bin folder of the SDK.

Look at the path in the image below. The path is the top address bar. Apart from This PC and Downloads, everything will be the same in your and my case. So you need to find where you have extracted that flutter_windows_stable folder. Screenshot (115).png

  2. Search for the edit system and select the option shown in the image below. Screenshot (111).png
