Judging from your screenshots, it looks like you just copied and pasted the command exactly as the Anaconda site wrote it. You were suppose to replace filename with the actual filename of the Anaconda executable file.

Get-FileHash filename -Algorithm SHA256
Get-FileHash C:\path\to\file.ext -Algorithm SHA256
