Allow for case-insensitivity in Windows

Turn on Windows Feature - Windows Subsystem for Linux This allows you the option of having one folder called learning and another called Learning in the same directory. Not that I wanted this but I needed it as I'd messed up my git repo!

You need to restart Windows and it will reboot a couple of times while it installs this feature.

Once it's done, open command prompt in Admin mode and run

fsutil.exe file SetCaseSensitiveInfo C:\folder\path enable

You can set CaseSensitiveInfo on a specific folder, which is what I needed to do.

Once it's enabled, I was able to git clone my repo and fix the mess.
