Unhandled rejection Error: Invalid tag name "depth=0"

What I Wanted to Do

I was running the following cmd:
C:\Windows\System32>npm list -g depth=0

What Happened Instead

An error message that required me to report the issue to

Reproduction Steps

Just the cmd above
But i think it will be hard to reproduce since it came after i tried installed
'npm install --global --production windows-build-tools ` which installed a python 2.7 version instead of my usual 3.7.2 and made it my default version…
So i npm uninstalled windows-build-tools

I will now simply uninstall and reinstall node…

You need to use --depth=0 instead of depth=0 (note the two hyphens).

Lars … awfully sorry for that … I am getting tired on my computer trying to wrestle windows :blush:
