All references are full of jargonism and don't explain anything at all or give examples. I run sage shell and prompt: run ('K:sageexample\example.sage.sage') but no result. I run load command load ('K:sageexample\example.sage.sage') no example. I don't want to install linux for one program. How to "sage" a file from notebook interface?

How did you install Sage ? On Windows, there are currently two possibilities :

installing the Sage virtual appliance (= a Linux virtual machine) and running it in Virtualbox.

Installing Erik Bray's installer (which creates a minimal Cygwin tree).

Both of these are mainly oriented to the interactive use of Sage from either a Jupyter worksheet or a "Sage console". Running Sage from the command line to compile example.sagetex.sage is a third (marginal) case, for which you need to be at a terminal :

A Linux terminal in the first case

A Cygwin terminal in the second case.

So tell us how you did install Sage...
