Data analyst path - Setting up Jupyter Notebook

Hi,

I’m doing the data analyst path. On this part of the syllabus I’m stuck.
https://www.codecademy.com/paths/data-analyst/tracks/dscp-python-fundamentals/modules/dscp-getting-started-off-platform/articles/setting-up-jupyter-notebook

I have installed Python (3.8.8 for W7) and Miniconda. However, when I am supposed to check that Python was installed correctly cmd tells me that (translated from Swedish) “conda is not an internal command, external command, program or command file”. What does it mean? What do I need to do in order to make it work?

Installing Jupyter with Miniconda. The instructions tells me to install Jupyter using the Miniconda package manager by running conda install jupyter to download and install the Jupyter Notebook package through cmd. How do I even do that? If I type “conda install jupyter” in cmd I get the same error message as before.

These instructions really need to be more clear. I feel like I’ve been away from school for several months and come back and I’m super far behind. Please help.

It can be confusing sometimes.

What happens when you type: where conda ?

I think you need to edit the PATH where you installed Python.

Did you install Jupyter?

See: https://jupyter.org/install

I think I solved it. I used the Anaconda Powershell Prompt (Miniconda3) to execute the commands and install Jupyter. The instructions were unclear, I though that I needed to use the Windows cmd.
