    How to open the AppData folder

    To open the AppData folder we can do it using the tool that gives us windows that is "Run".
    To open the run in a quick way is by pressing the [Windows] + [R] key.

    Keep in mind I have another language.

  • Tho notepad++ is cool as a starter for anyone learning or scripting but my recommendation will be VSCode and it has plenty of extensions that enable you of typing anything or even making your own extension, furthermore an autoformatting for those new to it.
