1) I choose the "MinGW-builds" after reading under the
headings "General Usage Instructions" and "Downloading the
toolchain" from the same tutorial - it seemed like a good
middle of the road choice.
3) I choose the "threads-win32" folder as it seems to
most closely correspond to my current goal.
had me looking carefully between the choice of the
"dwarf" or "sjlj" folders
I found an explanation here:
and so I choose "sjlj" as it seems to most closely
correspond to my current goal
6) Extracted using 7zip to c:\mingw32
I extract the file to a new folder called C:\mingw32 and
actually have to Ctrl-A / Ctrl-C everything in the
folder and copy to C:\mingw32 so that the executable I
need is in C:\mingw32\bin
I also delete the original folder c:\ming32\ming32 which
I copied the file hierarchy from
7) Changed my path variable by adding: ;c:\mingw32\bin
4) From the Command Prompt: i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -v
Using built-in specs.

All seemed well!
SO NOW WHAT?
As you can see I have documented what I have done
as best I can as a new user to the environments and
software technologies I am using so that there is not
much of anything assumed and all described as
specifically as possible and reasonable considering
these are personal notes and not a tutorial for others
(at least as of yet)
Best I can tell I need to download a QEMU
or do I need to get another version from github -
and if I do need another version from github can I use
git with my current setup or so I need to add git to it?
Can I decompress these inside my windows file
hierarchy in C:\ ?
Can I do it within the Command Prompt System now that I
have my path assigned as described in PART 2 and PART 3
Should I drop these into a new folder C:\qemu ? Is that
a bad strategy?
