More details for context:
My OS is Windows 10 and I have Spyder IDE installed, which also installed Anaconda on my system. I installed Spyder because I wanted to use it for tackling the Censor Dispenser Challenge. It really paid off, especially the “Variable Explorer” which helped me more precisely debug my code.
The instructions starts off with opening the command prompt and checking if python is installed using pip. When I open my command prompt and check, I find that python is not installed because it returns “pip not recognized”. It turns out that there is a separate CLI on my computer called Anaconda prompt, and using pip shows me that Python is installed.
Since Python is already installed somewhere in my computer, do I just have to make it accessible to the Windows Command Prompt? Or is the Python detected by Anaconda only available in Anaconda and I have to do a separate install of Python as per this Codecademy article?
I saw this article on how to setup virtual environments for Spyder/Anaconda. I have to use a different process to setup virtual environments for Spyder and for Windows Command Prompt or Anaconda Prompt?
