If after you install it pythuôn still isn’t recognized, then in PowerShell enter this:

Cthất bại PowerShell & then start it again to lớn make sure Python thả now runs. If it doesn’t,restart may be required.


If you want lớn see pybé nhỏ version then you should use py -V instead of pybé -V

If you want lớn go to lớn python"s running environment then you should use py instead of python

Open CMD with administrative sầu access(Right click then run as administrator) then type the following commvà there:

I have installed pyhẹp 3.7.4. First, I tried pybé nhỏ in my commvà prompt. It was saying that "Pynhỏ is not recognized commvà......". Then I tried "py" comm& và it works.

My sample command is:

From the Pythanh mảnh docs, set the PATH lượt thích you did as above sầu.

You should arrange for Python’s installation directory to lớn be added lớn the PATH of every comm& window as it starts. If you installed Python thả fairly recently then the comm& dir C:py* will probably tell you where it is installed; the usual location is something lượt thích C:Python27. Otherwise you will be reduced lớn a search of your whole disk

Use Tools ‣ Find or hit the Search button and look for “pythuôn.exe”. Supposing you discover that Pybé nhỏ is installed in the C:Python27 directory (the mặc định at the time of writing), you should make sure that entering the command

Another helpful but simple solution might be restarting your computer after doing the download if Pythanh mảnh is in the PATH variable. This has been a mistake I usually make when downloading Pyeo hẹp onto lớn a new machine.

If you uninstalled then re-installed, & running "python" in CLI, make sure to open a new CMD after your installation for "python" lớn be recognized. "py" will probably be recognized with an old CLI because its not tied to lớn any version.
