I'm currently stuck with not finding the init.el file, how do I find it on Windows and how do I load it?
If you run
M-x describe-variable user-emacs-directory or the following commands in a emacs-lisp buffer, you will find it.
(find-file (expand-file-name "init.el" user-emacs-directory))
It's usually in
%AppData%\.emacs.d but could be in
%UserProfile%\.emacs.d if you run emacs from Start-menu.
Load it with
(load-file (expand-file-name "init.el" user-emacs-directory))
