To execute, I had to run this command I got from this article in my powershell

Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy Bypass

This Stackoverflow thread also explains how to run a .ps1 script but instead of running these 2 commands,

powershell.exe -File C:\Script.ps1 -ExecutionPolicy BypassSet-ExecutionPolicy

I used this

Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy Bypass

After pressing enter (it may be better to just do this before pressing enter), it may ask you to run the following command,

Install-Module SharePointPnPPowerShellOnline

You have to run in powershell in an elevated state/run as administrator (before opening power shell, right click and run as administrator).

Accept the questions ( like you have a choice, lol, unless of course you’d prefer to not go ahead with it).

Now, when you press enter, after installing SharePoint PnP Powershell Online, you will be prompted to login.
