Getting Started with Windows 10

I’m totally a newby when it comes to running Windows and more specifically using Lambda Stack. I’ve only ever used Mac and Linux machines with Python and with the Lambda Stack, so I’m stuck at the very fundamental step of just getting an environment activated.

I got my code from Git on the Windows machine. Navigated to the folder and from what I see I don’t need to do “source” to activate an environment. But, this is the problem. The environment does not activate. Ok, I can probably find some info on that, but then my question is, am I suppose to use the Linux subsystem on Windows for the Lambda stack or should I continue down this path of trying to make it work in Windows?

Thank you for any help.
