Fix – “Webpack is Not Recognized” Error in Windows

It is quite common to come across this error while using webpack on windows environment for the first time. It is a path related error and the fix is quite simple.

I am assuming that you are using node packet manager (npm) to install webpack. Just add -g parameter while installing webpack. So the command will look like

npm install -g webpack --save-dev

You will also need to install webpack-cli ( if you are using webpack 4+)

npm install -g webpack-cli --save-dev

Thats it! Now you can use webpack in command line.

Did this solution work for you? Let me know in the comments below.
