the issue is, when I run a command in Windows PowerShell (e.g. npm install gulp-cli -g) it does nothing and the window minimizes, if I run an incorrect task, it responds with an error as normal, but does not work when I run something valid. Or if anyone could help me with how to install gulp for vscode, I would be most grateful, I’ve been trying for hours and running out of time.
Start>Windows Features>Scroll to Power Shell and check. See if you can run commands in Safe Mode.
If this command works net user administrator /active:yes us
If that doesn’t get you into the hidden Admin Account: Run (or Win+R)>>Highlight Administrator and uncheck disabled. Now try Command Prompt or Power Shell from that account.
