I have installed ros in windows 10 following this link. but when i try to install any ros pkg using sudo apt-get or apt-get install i'm getting error saying

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

How should i solved this problem? I am using ros melodic with windows 10. also when i try the cmd

choco install ros-melodic-teleop-twist-keyboard

i get below error:

Chocolatey v0.10.15 Installing the following packages: ros-melodic-teleop-twist-keyboard By installing you accept licenses for the packages. ros-melodic-teleop-twist-keyboard not installed. The package was not found with the source(s) listed. Source(s): '' NOTE: When you specify explicit sources, it overrides default sources.

@dinesh, in order to install the packages beyond ROS Melodic desktop_fullon Windows, you will need to create a catkin workspace and checkout the source code of the desired packages. For your example, you will need to git clone into your workspace.
