To copy paste a file from source path to destination path below command is working fine in Ubuntu operating system.

cp src/index1.html dist/index1.html

In Windows operating system while trying to execute the same command getting below error.

'cp' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Error is due to the reason that in windows we do not have cp command.

Instead of cp we use copy command to place source file in destination.
unlike forward slash / in ubuntu we use two backwardslash \\ while specifing the path of the file
Below is the example syntax of copy past of index1.html file.

copy src\\index1.html dist\\index1.html
