Installing Python on Windows 10

I found this tutorial to be one of the most complete and easy to follow tutorials when it comes to successfully installing python on your windows 10 pc operating system. He installs both Python 2 and Python 3 so that you can work on any project in both environments. For his IDE he uses atom which  I installed for the first time and like it so far. I used Sublime Text previously and I find Atom to be just as good.

If you are coming over from Mac or Linux like I am one major difference in running the python code is that you don not run it from the command prompt like on other OS’s you will run it from PowerShell which is Microsoft version of command prompt outside of it basic command prompt. Following the direction in the video will make it painless and easy while installing Python on your new Windows OS.
