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 get-pip.py and copy it anywhere in your system.
  • Navigate to the copied folder using command prompt.
  • And run the below command to install the pip
python get-pip.py

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.

    Hello,
    I am facing issues with pip in windows 10.

    I wanted to uninstall everything of python (Python 3.8.8, Anaconda & jupyter) and reinstall the latest versions. While running pip commands, it is giving the message “Script file ‘D:\Python-Anaconda\envs\stock-screener\Scripts\pip-script.py’ is not present.”

    In virtual environment when I tried I am getting:

    >>> python -m install –upgrade pip
    File “”, line 1
    python -m install –upgrade pip
    ^
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax

    I have been searching internet for help for 5 days. But in vain.

    I tried to reinstall pip. But I am getting the same error message.

    Now, at your website, I am stuck again.

    You used the term “download”:

    References:
    Python PIP download.

    When I click it, it is taking me to your webpage:

    https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py

    I am not able to understand how to use it.

    Kindly help.

      Hello Saaie,

      It looks like the old python installation has the active path in Windows environment variables. Try to remove the old env variable and try. similar like here

      Thanks
      Chandra
