Have you tried finding it?
dir c:\certbot* /s

Note: I don't use certbot for Windows but if it installed, it should be there... somewhere.

The issue is that certbot either hasn't been automatically added to your PATH environment variable, or you still had a cmd open from before you installed certbot (you need to re-open cmd). Based on my own quick check this should be pointing to C:\Program Files (x86)\Certbot\bin\

Certbot is best when used for Apache or nginx webservers, for IIS try a different client (ACME Client Implementations - Let's Encrypt) such as Certify The Web or win-acme.
