Hi James,

As per https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/304554/npm-is-not-recognized-as-an-internal-or-external-command-vs-code-salesforc this appears to be an issue many users reported after having Salesforce CLI updated to the latest version "sfdx-cli/7.56.1-2773b53bf5"

So the solution would be to either install the NPM package manager or install nodejs.

Hope this helps you. Please mark this answer as best so that others facing the same issue will find this information useful.
 
Thank you

Hi Anutej,
I re-installed the node.js, the issue is no longer appearing.

Thanks
