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.

So instead of this:
Get-FileHash filename -Algorithm SHA256

It should be something along the lines of this:
Get-FileHash C:\path\to\file.ext -Algorithm SHA256

Hope that makes sense.
