How To Install Python 3 on Windows 10

Step 1: Download Python Executable Installer
Open your web browser and navigate to the Downloads for Windows section of the official Python website.
Search for your desired version of Python. At the time of publishing this article, the latest Python 3 release is version 3.7.3, while the latest Python 2 release is version 2.7.16.
Select a link to download either the Windows x86-64 executable installer or Windows x86 executable installer. The download is approximately 25MB.

Step 2: Run Executable Installer
Note: If your Windows installation is a 32-bit system, you need the Windows x86 executable installer. If your Windows is a 64-bit version, you need to download the Windows x86-64 executable installer. There is nothing to worry about if you install the “wrong” version. You can uninstall one version of Python and install another.

Step 3: Run Executable Installer

  1. Run the Python Installer once downloaded. (In this example, we have downloaded Python 3.7.3.)
  2. Make sure you select the Install launcher for all users and Add Python 3.7 to PATH checkboxes. The latter places the interpreter in the execution path. For older versions of Python that do not support the Add Python to Path checkbox, see Step 6.
  3. Select Install Now – the recommended installation options.
    For all recent versions of Python, the recommended installation options include Pip and IDLE. Older versions might not include such additional features.
  4. The next dialog will prompt you to select whether to Disable path length limit. Choosing this option will allow Python to bypass the 260-character MAX_PATH limit. Effectively, it will enable Python to use long path names.

Step 4: Verify Python Was Installed On Windows
Navigate to the directory in which Python was installed on the system. In our case, it is C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37 since we have installed the latest version.
Double-click python.exe.
The output should be similar to what you can see below:
Step 5: Verify Pip Was Installed
If you opted to install an older version of Python, it is possible that it did not come with Pip preinstalled. Pip is a powerful package management system for Python software packages. Thus, make sure that you have it installed.
We recommend using Pip for most Python packages, especially when working in virtual environments.
To verify whether Pip was installed:
Open the Start menu and type “cmd.”
Select the Command Prompt application.
Enter pip -V in the console. If Pip was installed successfully, you should see the following output:
