Checking Python installation

Open command prompt:

on Windows: press Win+R, type cmd, press Enter. You will see a window where you can type commands:

In command prompt type

python --version


python3 --version

followed by Enter to check if python is correctly installed. You should get response indicating installed python version, like this:

Python 3.11.4

On Windows, if Microsoft Store is open when you execute “python” command or the command simply gives no response:

On Windows 11 go to Start Menu → Settings → Apps → Advanced app settings → App execution aliases and disable “python” and “python3” aliases.

On Windows 10 open Start Menu → Settings (“Gear” icon) → Applications → Applications and functions → Link “Application execution aliases”. Disable “python” and “python3” items.
