After spending hours on many recommendations that did not work. I finally got
npx create-react-app running by doing the following:
Uninstall npm by running the following code at your command prompt:
npm uninstall -g create-react-app
Increase timeout by changing/adding this line in your .npmrc file:
Your .npmrc file can be found in
Then RESTART your PC
Disable your antivirus (as @Antoine said)
Run the following at the command prompt
npm clean cache --force npm install create-react-app npx create-react-app my-app
my-appis the name of your project
NOTE: I am not using any proxy.
