Everytime i type in editor window, nothing comes out of the command window. For example when i type x = 3 it just goes to the next line and command window doesn't say the answer.

You need to run your script to execute whatever code you have written. There's a green triangle on the Editor panel, beneath which 'Run' is written, pressing that will run your script.
However, that won't guarantee the value of any variable to be displayed on the command window, if you have suppressed the output by using a semi-colon. You need to type the variable name and press enter to find the assigned value.

The editor is a tool to write scripts and functions. You save them as files, which can be called from other scripts or functions or from the command window.
If you type "x=3" in the editor, there is no result, because this creates a text file only. Results are produced, when the text file is executed only. So the editor is not the command window.
