Solution:

You require to include the following paths to PATH:

  • C:\Program Files\Git\bin\

  • C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\

And inspect that these paths are right – you may have Git installed on a different drive, or under Program Files (x86). Fixed the paths in case required.

Modifying PATH on Windows 10:

  1. In the Start Menu or taskbar search, seek for "environment variable".
  2. Choose "Edit the system environment variables".
  3. Click On the "Environment Variables" button at the bottom.
  4. Double-click the "Path" entry under "System variables".
  5. With the "New" button in the PATH editor, include C:\Program Files\Git\bin\ and C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\ to the end of the list.
  6. Close and re-open your console.

Modifying PATH on Windows 7:

  1. Right-click "Computer" on the Desktop or Start Menu.

  2. Choose "Properties".

  3. On the very far left, click the "Advanced system settings" link.

  4. Click the "Environment Variables" button at the bottom.

  5. Double-click the "Path" entry under "System variables".

  6. At the end of "Variable value", insert a ; in case there is not meanwhile one, and then C:\Program Files\Git\bin\;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\. Do not put a space between ; and the entry.

  7. Close and re-open your console.

or Follow this steps

  1. Go to My Computer => Local Disk(C:) => Program Files(x86) => Git => cmd
  2. Right Click On the git => Select Properties
  3. Beneath the location Copy the text eg - C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\cmd
  4. Come back to the Desktop
  5. Right-click My Computer
  6. Choose property
  7. Open Advanced
  8. Click Environment Variables
  9. In the System variables Find the Variable call Path
  10. Click on the variable
  11. Click the Edit Button
  12. Choose the Variable value Text Box .
  13. Go to the edge of the text and put semicolon(;)
  14. Then Right-click and press Paste
  15. Press Ok

In case you are employing GitHub for Windows (GitHub's old Git GUI that is no longer available for download, not the new Electron-based GitHub Desktop), you have an installation of Git under:

C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME>\AppData\Local\GitHub\PortableGit_8810fd5c2c79c73adcc73fd0825f3b32fdb816e7\cmd

Extend this path, and include it to PATH.
