Add to PATH Environment Variable

This is optional but will help you in accessing the CLI in a terminal with any working directory

Creating the Wallet Directory


cd %HOMEPATH%/Documents/Monero/wallets && mkdir stagenet_one && cd stagenet_one


cd ~/Documents/Monero/wallets && mkdir stagenet_one && cd stagenet_one

Open Wallet from GUI
