Keeping this in view, how do I run a NuGet command?

To use any command, open a command window or bash shell, then run nuget followed by the command and appropriate options, such as nuget help pack (to view help on the pack command). This documentation reflects the latest version of the NuGet CLI.

Likewise, how do NuGet packages work? Developers with code to share create packages and publish them to a public or private host. Package consumers obtain those packages from suitable hosts, add them to their projects, and then call a package's functionality in their project code. NuGet itself then handles all of the intermediate details.
