This question already has an answer here:
I tried really hard to figure this out on my own, but I'm pretty out of my depth, and I feel like the things that I have found that could answer my questions assume I already know some stuff. I'm fairly new to crypto, but I kept hearing everyone say to get your stuff off of the exchanges and into a wallet. I got the wallet from the ethereum website, opened it up, saw an address, and sent my ETH there. I can link the transaction if that's helpful. I have been unable to sync since then. I can get within 100ish blocks, but then it just stops. I'm well past the block containing my transaction, but my wallet still reads as empty. I see now that I'm supposed to have command line tools or something. I don't know nearly as much about computers as my mom thinks I do, and I'm wondering what I can do to access my ETH. Can anyone help me?
