For others, please follow the below steps to install Angular 11 on Windows 10.

1. Install Node.js

We need NPM to install Angular CLI. To install Node.js on your system and NPM will install with Node.js.

To install Node.js, go to the official Node.js website, download the latest version and install it.

After the installation, check the versions using the below commands.

node -v
npm -v

This will show the installed versions of Node.js and NPM.

If you are really a beginner in this field, the guide Steps to install Node.js and NPM on Windows 10 will help you.

2. Install Angular CLI

Angular CLI helps us to create projects, generate application and library code, and perform a variety of ongoing development tasks such as testing, bundling, and deployment.

It can simply be installed using NPM. So first, open our Command Prompt / Powershell and install the Angular CLI with the below command.

npm install -g @angular/cli

This will ask you a question.

Would you like to share anonymous usage data with the Angular Team at Google under Google’s Privacy Policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy? For more details and how to change this setting, see http://angular.io/analytics.

You can either agree or disagree with the question. Press y and Enter for agreeing and n and Enter if you are disagreeing. This answer won’t affect the Angular installation.

3. Creating a New Angular Application

You have successfully installed Angular CLI on our system and now you can set up a workspace for Angular projects in the system and create a new app. This can be done with the below command.

ng new awesome-project

This will ask you two questions.

1. Would you like to add Angular routing?

press y if you are preferring t to create a multi-page website. Otherwise choose n.

2. Which stylesheet format would you like to use?

Choose any stylesheet format that you are familiar with. Here I chose CSS.

4. Running Our App

Now, the app you created can be run using ng serve command.

cd awesome-project
ng serve --open

This launches the server, watches our files, and rebuilds the app as we make changes to those files. The –-open (or just -o) option automatically opens our browser to the address http://localhost:4200.

TechoTip: We recommend using Visual Studio code as the source-code editor for working with Angular projects.

Summary

So, we have discussed the steps to install Node.js on our Windows 10 system and installation on Angular 11 using NPM(Node Package Manager).
