Find the location of NPM global packages on Windows

Today I wanted to add a file from a package that I had installed globally with NPM to Webstorm. Where does NPM install the global packages on Windows? How to find the location?

As always, once you know how it is simple. Just execute the following command from cmd.

npm config ls -l | grep prefix

That will show you the location. Which is probably something like C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\npm.
