 [Part-1]Python 3.6/3.7 and pip installation under Windows
Python 3.7 install last in this thread.

This is a advice how to install Python and pip under Windows | Part-2
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]
(c) 2016 Microsoft Corporation. Med enerett.
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.
C:\>pip install requests
Collecting requests
  Using cached requests-2.13.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl
Installing collected packages: requests
Successfully installed requests-2.13.0

Python 3.6.1 (v3.6.1:69c0db5, Mar 21 2017, 17:54:52) [MSC v.1900 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import requests
>>> r = requests.get('')
>>> r.status_code
>>> r.encoding
>>> r.headers['date']

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Also your pip may be out of date.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

Python 3.7
Installasjon work the same 3.6.
But the Add Python 3.7 to Path did not overwrite the 3.6 Path,so i had to change Path manually to point to 3.7.
The setup look:

pip is automatically marked on,do not utmark it.

Fixing Path if needed
For new user the Path to 3.7 should be okay.
Here how to change Environment Variables Path

Check python and pip
Check that python and pip point to 3.7 from anywhere cmd/cmder.
λ python -V
Python 3.7.0

λ pip -V
pip 10.0.1 from c:\python37\lib\site-packages\pip (python 3.7)
python will use Python 3.7.
pip install something will install to Python 3.7

Access other versions
All other version installed can be accessed by using py(this is a py.exe that get installed in Path of Windows)
λ py -3.6 -V                                                                                                   
Python 3.6.4                                                        
λ py -2.7 -V                                                                                                   
Python 2.7.9                                                                                                   
λ # Using pip to install to 2.7                                                                            
λ py -2.7 -m pip install logzero                                                                               
Requirement already satisfied: logzero in c:\python27\lib\site-packages
