Include the below line in your code before creating the browser instance and mention the path where the chromedriver exists. It should work.

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","<path to chrome driver>\chromedriver.exe");

If your chromedriver is in the C drive under the Driver folder, then the code should be like this:

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","C:\Driver\chromedriver.exe");

yes , i included that line

this is the script what iam going to run

 

package testing;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class Demo
{

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        
    System.setProperty("Webdriver.Chrome.driver","C:\\Users\\Yogesha\\Downloads\\chromedriver.exe");
        WebDriver driver=new ChromeDriver();
        driver.get("https://Google.com");
    }

}

iam not getting why iam getting this error

There's a typo in your code. 

The code should be:

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","<path to chrome driver>\chromedriver.exe");

with all small-case letters but you are using some upper-case letters:

System.setProperty("Webdriver.Chrome.driver","C:\\Users\\Yogesha\\Downloads\\chromedriver.exe");
Now iam able to run the script Thanks and regards .....
