Python was not found run without arguments to install from the Microsoft Store, or disable this shortcut from Settings
This error message typically indicates that Python is not installed on your system or is not added to the system PATH environment variable. Here’s what you can do to resolve this issue:
1 Install Python
You can download the latest version of Python from the official website (https://www.python.org/downloads/) and install it on your system. During the installation, make sure to check the “Add Python to PATH” option to add it to the system PATH environment variable.
2 Check system PATH environment variable
If you have already installed Python but still facing this issue, then you should check if Python is added to the system PATH environment variable.
To check this, open the command prompt and run the following command:
echo %PATH% This will print the list of all directories included in the system PATH environment variable.
Check if the directory where Python is installed is listed. If not, you can add it manually by following these steps:
Open the Start menu and search for “Edit the system environment variables”.
Click on the “Environment Variables” button.
In the “System Variables” section, scroll down and find the “Path” variable, then click on “Edit”.
Click on “New” and add the directory where Python is installed (e.g., C:\Python39).
Click “OK” to save the changes and close all the windows.
3 Check for errors in the installation process
If you have installed Python but still facing this issue, then there may have been some errors during the installation process. You can try to reinstall Python to see if it resolves the issue.
Once you have installed Python and added it to the system PATH environment variable, you should be able to run Python scripts and commands from the command prompt.
