Solution 1 - Python

On Windows pip3 should be in the Scripts path of your Python installation:



where python

to find out where your Python executable(s) is/are located. The result should look like this:




You can check if pip3 works with this absolute path:


if yes, add C:\path\to\python\Scripts to your environmental variable PATH .

Solution 2 - Python

I Installed pip and pip3 in my windows 10 system easily from the official Microsoft store.

Search python3.9 in Microsoft store. then, click on "Get" to install on you windows platform.

It will install all python install packagers like PIP, PIP3.

Solution 3 - Python

For python3.5.3, pip3 is also installed when you install python. When you install it you may not select the add to path. Then you can find where the pip3 located and add it to path manually.

Solution 4 - Python

By default installer from adds this PATH variable: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps but pip3 installs to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python39\Scripts.

You should add this path %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python39\Scripts to your PATH variables.

There is another way to install the pip3: just reinstall 3.6.
