Welcome to the MongoDB community @ketan_k !
Can you provide some more details on your environment:
- version of MongoDB server installed
- your O/S version

You can also Download MongoDB Tools from the MongoDB Download Centre if they are not already installed.
Same issue here, using VS Code and wants to connect to the mongo shell. Unable to find mongosh.exe in version 6.0. These are files I could find in the “bin” folder:
*PS C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\6.0\bin> ls* *Directory: C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\6.0\bin* *Mode LastWriteTime Length Name* *---- ------------- ------ ----* *-a---- 05-07-2022 18:40 1558 InstallCompass.ps1* *-a---- 12-08-2022 13:41 605 mongod.cfg* *-a---- 05-07-2022 20:15 55887872 mongod.exe* *-a---- 05-07-2022 20:15 832090112 mongod.pdb* *-a---- 05-07-2022 20:22 34573824 mongos.exe* *-a---- 05-07-2022 20:22 464392192 mongos.pdb*
You can open the
InstallCompass.ps1 PowerShell script to install MongoDB Compass (which includes an embedded version of
mongosh, the new MongoDB Shell) or download the MongoDB Shell from the the MongoDB Download Center: MongoDB Shell Download | MongoDB
@SAURAV_KUMAR The referenced issue is a similar problem (the legacy
mongo shell is no longer included with MongoDB 6.0) for a different O/S environment. Per Install MongoDB Community Edition on Ubuntu, there is a
mongodb-mongosh Ubuntu package for the new MongoDB shell.
