Install Python on Windows

Before you start programming, you will need to download and install Python. To do this, browse to the official download site and download the latest version for Windows:

download python

The file you’ve downloaded contains everything you will need to get started with Python: the Python interpreter, command-line tool, IDLE application, etc. Double-click the installation file to start the installation and select whether you would like to install Python for all users or just for yourself:

install python all users

Select the installation directory:


Select the Python components that will be installed. If possible, leave the defaults:

install python components

The installation should start. After it’s done, click Finish to exit the installer:

install python finish

That’s it! Python is installed and ready to use.
