How to Install Python in your System | Complete Guide

Python is a general-purpose and high-level programming language. Writing Python code is very easy and simple than other programming languages like C++, PHP, Java, etc. There are different desktop and web application can be developed with Python and also facilitate the developer to produce the simple and complex type of features in any project.

There are different types of applications you can build with Python or can develop the complex types of functionalities in that field like Data Science, Data analytics, Deep learning, AI, ML, Web Development, etc. But in this tutorial, you will learn How to install Python, this lesson is especially for beginner students who have made planned to learn Python. So let’s start!

Discussing Python versions

As Python programming language is developed by Guido Van Rossum in 1990, it is the successor of ABC language. If we talk about its version, its first version 0.9 released on 1991-02-20. to 1993-07-29 end. We did not need to use its first version, we have to work on the latest version because they add new functions, features, etc in the newly released version to improve performance.

The current Python version is 3.9 which is released on 2020-10-05, some programmers are using Python 2 version also. But it is your own choice that which version you want but recommended is that you have to use current versions. Sometimes you build an application in version 2 and your version 3 is released what do you have to do here?  do you have to use version 2 or 3? If you want to work specific version like 2 as the new version is released then you have to create a virtual environment.

The virtual environment is that environment in which you can build or work on any python version without creating interference with other versions.

Here is a complete list of Python versions you can get more details

Python Version

In this article, we will work with version 3.

As in this article, we have to discuss Python Downloading and installation with version 3. After installation, you can work to write Python coding to create simple and complex applications.

You will be cleared following steps in this tutorial:

  • Downloading python
  • Installation Python
  • Verification of Python in your system
  • Verificaiotn of PIP installation

Step1: Download Python from python.org

1. First of all you have to visit Python official website python.org

When you visit python.org you can check everything about python as libraries, community, documentation, all versions, news, etc. You have to download python just click the below link to reach a direct link

So this is the executable file, you can double click to start its installation or right click and click on open.

Step2: Install Python executable file

1. As I have mentioned above you can start the installation by double click on the python-3.9.6-amd64.exe file as you have downloaded in step1.

When you start installation through installer a window pop-up will appear in which you will see different things on the window as Python versions that you are installing. And two checkboxes, one is already checked and other is uncheck, But it is very necessary and recommended to check below box with label ‘Add Python 3.9 to PATH’

If you have already installed Python in your system, then these checkboxes will not appear just you will be asked to upgrade the python version.

After checking on both checkboxes, then click on Install now, then a new window will appear in which installation progress will show, you have to wait until all the progress bar is complete.

You will get a successful message after completing the installation. Then you can click on the Close button because Python is successfully installed in your system.

Step3: Verify to check python is installed or not

There are different ways to check wheater Python is installed successfully or not. You have to open cmd (command prompt) just have to write python and press enter. You will see the different information about Python-like which version you have installed, your system information 64 or 32, etc. It means Pyhton is successfully installed in your system.

If you look at the screenshot you will get some information as

Note: I have already installed Python in my system, you will get different information about version, date, etc…

C:\Windows\system32\python
Python 3.8.7<tags/v3.8.7:6503f05, Dec 21 2020,17:59:51>…

Step4: Verify to Check PIP

Actually, Pip is the package manager software written in Python. When you install by default it is also installed in your system. But sometimes there is not installed pip in your system, in this section we have to verify wheater a pip is installed in your system or not.

You have to open the CMD command prompt and type pip –version and press enter. You will see different information related to pip as its version, python version, path, etc. If your system has no pip then you will get an error.

If your system has pip installed then you can use pip to install and uninstall Python-based libraries or packages.

Just you have to write pip install package-name press enter specific package will be installed…

What is PIP?

PIP is used when you want to install/uninstall the package, as it is written in Python. We can say that it is the manager for Python packages when you want to install different dependencies for a project. When you install Python it automatically installs with Pyhton built-in libraries. Sometimes your packages did not install, the reason is that you using an old version of pip, so you should be notified that the pip package should be up to date.
