ng : The term 'ng' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function Visual Studio Code Terminal


In VS Code when I am running command ng build, getting error

PS D:\Dashboard\Test1> ng build
ng : The term 'ng' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if   
a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:1
+ ng build
+ ~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (ng:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

I have added these environment variable in Path

C:\Users\Avind\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\bin;

How can I get rid of this issue?

Note: I have node.js at C:\Program Files\nodejs. From command prompt ng new project not working but working from node.js command.

Edit 1: After executing npm install -g @angular/cli@latest from VS Code terminal getting below msg and ng cmd not working

PS D:\Path\Test1> npm install -g @angular/cli@latest
npm WARN deprecated request@2.88.2: request has been deprecated, see
C:\Users\Avind\AppData\Roaming\npm\ng -> C:\Users\Avind\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\@angular\cli\bin\ng

> @angular/cli@9.1.9 postinstall C:\Users\AR20095474\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\@angular\cli
> node ./bin/postinstall/script.js

+ @angular/cli@9.1.9

You need to install the latest angular cli to make the ng command work, you can run it from the command termial or visual studio code terminal

npm install -g @angular/cli@latest

if still not working, uninstall and reinstall node.js from program and feature.
