What's the difference between writing code in the windows command prompt/IDE/Visual studio code?

I am a beginner at coding. If I want to code directly on command prompt, where do I learn the commands of windows system, such as open and delete a file?

I know vs is a text editor. I learned that in my college intro to programming class. However, the commands I learned are for Linux and Unix system. I wonder what are the command functions for windows system? And where can I find them?

have you tried the command help, or do a web search for windows cmd or windows powershell

In PowerShell, you can use cmdlet Get-Command to help learn commands available. In cmd.exe you can start with help.

Look additionally on the tag info pages of cmd and batch-file and powershell with links to pages and web sites with additional useful information about Windows commands and PowerShell cmdlets.

help in cmd.exe doesn't show all commands. You can find a complete list at SS64 (remember that some commands are not available at all Windows versions)

Youtube has all you'd need to get ramped up on all three on Windows. Just search for 'Beginning Windows batch programming', 'Beginning Windows Powershell ISE', 'Beginning Powershell console', and 'Visual Studio Code PowerShell'. Yet, why did you not just search for 'What's the difference between writing code in the windows command prompt/IDE/Visual studio code?'
