A good guide for setting up windows local development environment

Can someone please point me to a clear guide for setting up windows local development environment ? I have been trying to follow this https://roots.io/getting-started/docs/windows-basic-setup/ but there seems to be a lot of assumed knowledge in here. Do I have to follow this guide in its entirety in one sitting? If I install things like git is it a one time thing or do I need to follow all of the sets until I have a working environment?

Sorry for the super nooob question but I’m trying to learn in lunch breaks and getting nowhere fast.
