Avrdude and Arduino IDE

Good Day to all
I have the latest version of Arduino IDE on my laptop , I wish to use Avrdude which is if I am correct a directory within Arduino IDE.
When I open the Arduino IDE directory using windows command prompt the Avrdude directory is not in Arduino IDE

01/10/2021  15:27    <DIR>          .
01/10/2021  15:27    <DIR>          ..
01/10/2021  15:38    <DIR>          AA_NRF_RX
23/09/2021  08:46    <DIR>          Arduino_Matrix_Clock_Sep21

27/09/2021  13:53    <DIR>          Toggle_Switch

Do I have to download Avrdude and extract it and merge it with Arduino IDE library
Thanks oldguyjn

On my Windows 10 PC avrdude.exe is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\tools\avr\bin\avrdude.exe
