Python PIP is a package manager. It is used to install and manage the python software modules. Here we will see where can we find Python PIP in windows and How to install PIP on Windows 10 operating system.

Where can I find Python PIP in windows?

If you have installed Python version 3.4 or later, PIP is included by default, that means if you are on below 3.4 version of python you have to install PIP manually.

To find the PIP package manager in windows navigate the below path and check for pip –version


C:\Users\{USER_NAME}\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\Scripts>pip --version

pip 20.0.2 from c:\users\{USER_NAME}\appdata\local\programs\python\python37\lib\site-packages\pip (python 3.7)

On the above output, you can see, I have pip 20.0.0 and python 3.7.

If you haven’t seen this, that means you do not have pip installed on your windows machine, let’s install PIP on windows.

How to install PIP on Windows:

  • Download the pip file and copy it anywhere in your system.
  • Navigate to the copied folder using command prompt.
  • And run the below command to install the pip

Now you can verify the installation by using the pip -V command.

Default Pip installation path: C:\Users\{your_user}\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\Scripts>
C:\Users\{your user}\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\Scripts>pip -V

You should see the below similar output:

pip 20.0.2 from c:\users\{your user}\appdata\local\programs\python\python37\lib\site-packages\pip (python 3.7)

Now you have successfully installed pip on windows system, now on you can make use of it for managing your python packages.
