Setting Up Msys2;MinGW64 for Windows

Many of us Windows users try to have Visual Studio environment.
But that’s not always great option. Unless you are ready to download 8GB on your internet bandwidth.

I personally like Visual Studio and its fast upcoming cousin VS Code. But hate the large download part.

Hence an opensource alternative is a need of the hour.
Also if you like to compile linuxy style code with Makefile in all its glory.

MinGW64 at your service friend!
