You need to run `javac` in the directory containing your Java file. Use the command `cd Desktop` to change to the Desktop (assuming you are in your user profile directory).
Check that you are in the right directory using the `dir` command (which by default lists the contents of the current directory). If you see `` in the output, you are good to go.

First of all you need to download and install both Java and JDK on your computer. If you want to run Java programs using the command prompt then you need to make some changes to your computer.
After installing java and JDK go to the JDK folder in C drive and there will be a folder called bin,
2. copy the link and get back to your desktop
3. Open computer properties and tap Advance Settinsg
4. then go for Environment variables
5. then type path(just double click it will allow you to edit. paste the link you copied followed by a semicolon).
Save it and try to run the program again
