Another way to obtain a gcc compiler for Windows is to install Bloodshed C++ environment that comes with MinGW64 and a great IDE.

You can use winget:

PS C:\Users\User> winget search gcc
Nome                       Id                              Versione   Corrispondenza Origine
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CrossWorks for ARM         Rowley.CrossWorks               4.8        Tag: GCC       winget
Embarcadero Dev-C++        Bloodshed.Dev-C++               6.3        Tag: gcc       winget
GNU Arm Embedded Toolchain Arm.GnuArmEmbeddedToolchain     10-2021.07 Tag: gcc       winget
libjpeg-turbo SDK (GCC)    libjpeg-turbo.libjpeg-turbo-gcc 2.1.1                     winget
Go Programming Language    GoLang.Go                       1.17.2     Tag: gccgp     winget
PS C:\Users\User>winget install Bloodshed.Dev-C++
...


or use the installer form Embarcadero:

Free Embarcadero Dev-C++[^]

If you are interested in give a try to clang for windows, I would like to suggest you install https://www.ultimatepp.org/ which comes with clang 10 for Windows.

PS C:\Users\User> C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\upp\bin\clang\bin\clang++.exe --version
clang version 10.0.0 (https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project.git d32170dbd5b0d54436537b6b75beaf44324e0c28)
Target: x86_64-w64-windows-gnu
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\upp\bin\clang\bin
PS C:\Users\User>
