Thank you so much, after 4 tutorials and 3 days of trying it finally worked! Yay!!!

For those who might have the same problem as I did: When I used start-dfs.cmd and start-yarn.cmd it said the command couldn't be found. After a quick internet search I figured out that I needed to go to the sbin directory because it's in there and start it from there. Worked fine then.

Glad it worked! I actually went back to follow this guide again recently and skipped over the part where I say to add \sbin to the PATH, too. No worries!
