If you are sure python is installed on your windows machine, but still encounter the following problem while trying to run python from your windows cmd terminal:

C:\Users\Joe> python
'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\Joe> pip install requests
'pip' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\Users\Joe> jupyter notebook
