I tried setting up Python on my computer, but some of the steps in the article below differed from the way my PC behaves.
https://www.codecademy.com/articles/setup-python (I encountered difficulties under the ‘Running Python’ section)
I have the latest version of Python, and I have notepad++. However, when I tried searching ‘cmd’ on my computer, only command prompt showed up. I tried using this, and I was able launch Python, but it still won’t let me use a file by entering ‘
python name.py’. I’m assuming that I need to find the location of the file, but I don’t know the language to get to the file location. It says something about a ‘cd’ command, but I don’t know if I’ll have enough time to learn that before the trial ends. Help’s appreciated!
I’m seriously lost because other posts I have found say to
import os and
os.chdir(path), but I can’t make it work.
