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

When keying sfdx from cmd or from the VS Code Terminal, I am getting the error: 'sfdx' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Any clue on how to fix this?

Thank you.

At the end, I found the problem:

upon installing Salesforce CLI, the process created an Environment Variable with the name "Salesforce CLI".

By reviewing the screen shots here (https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/163795/sfdx-is-not-recognized-as-an-internal-or-external-command) (provided above by Raj Vakati), I have observed that the Environment variable refered to Salesforce CLI was named "Path". I have therefore tried renaming the Environment variable to "Path" and.... guess what... IT WORKED!

Thank you both, Raj Vakati and Greg Finzer)

Also, Java is a pre-requisite as well.

sharing how it got sorted for me.
'sfdx' command in command prompt(run as admin) threw error - sfdx is not recognized.
I had multiple Salesforce CLI installed on my system.from my Salesforce CLI, sfdx folder in sytem, ran the uninstall file.

then installed the Salesforce CLI- https://developer.salesforce.com/tools/sfdxcli# (https://developer.salesforce.com/tools/sfdxcli#). Issue got fixed. Hope it helps somebody.
