*You could also install Python 2.7 but we highly encourage you to install the latest version (now 3.5).
The easiest way to install Python 3.5 is through the offical website.
Run the downloaded file and follow the steps.
After the installation is complete restart your computer to make sure the changes have been applied.
Go to programs and look for Python 3.5.
The best way to start is to open the IDLE (Python GUI). This is a command line where you can run simple Python code but nothing is saved to a file.
Another way to run python files is through the command prompt.
Let's say your Python file is saved in Documents. Type 'dir' to see all the available files and folders in the current directory.
In order to access any folder, in this case 'Documents', we type 'cd Documents'.
C:> cd Documents
Type again 'dir' and you should see your python file listed.
*If you get lost or don't know in which directory you are, you can go back to C by typing 'C:\' and press Enter.
Let's say the python file you want to run is called 'example.py'. To run the file:
Both ways should work fine and the result is the same as above.
If this error shows up: 'python is not recognized as an internal or external command, operanle program or batch file.'
After opening the command prompt, type: setx PATH C:\Python35 (assuming you installed Python 3.5).
