[Basic] [Part-1]Python 3.6 and pip installation under Windows
This is a advice how to install Python and pip under Windows.
It's advisable to change the long default Path,to a simper Path eg C:\Python36.

Python download.
Choose a executable installer  32-bit or 64-bit.


Under Customize installation make sure that pip is marked on.


Here also choose Path C:\Python36


Finish install.



Testing that python and pip command work from cmd.
Start cmd:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]

Python 3.6.0 (v3.6.0:41df79263a11, Dec 23 2016, 07:18:10) [MSC v.1900 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> exit()
C:\>pip -V
pip 9.0.1 from c:\python36\lib\site-packages (python 3.6)
Now that all work,can eg test pip with install of Requests.

Would like to add some things.

A lot of people come unfamiliar with using the command prompt and are confused in thinking pip is ran on the python interpreter (ie. >>> prompt), but is ran on the system's command prompt (ie. windows C:\ prompt, linux username@computername ~$).

Also your pip may be out of date.

Quote:pip : You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.
This is just a warning. Your package will still install, but it is just warning you that your pip is not current. You can update pip by the command they give you pip install --upgrade pip

You can use pip to upgrade your existing packages
pip install -U youtube-dl
