Setting Up Docker for Windows 10

Didn't really had any use for Docker until today. Was trying to follow a course via Safari Online, and long story short - I'd probably need a docker to simplify setting up all the infra.

Except setting Docker itself turned out to be quite a problem for me.

Here's how I got it to work.

1. Downloaded Docker (community edition) from their website (
2. Installed it.
3. Checked whether hyper-V is enabled. (Go to task manager -> Performance -> CPU and you should see as section as "Virtualization : Enabled") [1]
4. Open up PowerShell
5. Use 'docker-machine create ' to create a virtual machine. I named mine 'box'
6. Configure your shell (refer to image)
