GIT problem -- unable to auto-detect email address

Hi All¡
I am new here… I have a problem.
This is my first git session I am starting cs50w.
I am able to make a pull but I can not make a commit, then I can not make a commit and push.
I have installed again git in my pc, i have run:
git config --global user.email “you@example.com
git config --global user.name “Your Name”
but nothing…
I believe the image is self explanatory, the name that git cmd detects is related with my name and the name of the computer.

I hope you can help me out.

Rgds, Fernando

There’s an “e” missing: The setting marked in your screenshot is user.mail, you need to set user.email instead.
