When working in the Windows environment, you need the environment variables to add the path where the composer bin is, as you can not find it, that's why you get the error


  • Right click on equipment
  • Properties
  • Advanced system configuration
  • Click on environment variables
  • Inside system variables look for the option that says Path
  • Add the following route

    C: \ Users \ UserName \ AppData \ Roaming \ Composer \ vendor \ bin

    Adapt that equivalent path to your pc, close the cmd, reopen it, if there are no more details; write composer and you should return the composer commands and recognize the command


    Remember each route that you put in the system variable separates it by ; that is, after the last value that appears in that route, it places the; and paste the equivalent path to the one I put above
