I can not get python3 to work... frustrating... something about directory?
#1
I've reinstalled and installed sublime text and python over and over again in Windows. And for some reason python works but not python3.

in CMD prompt window if I type python it opens python 3.8.1 but if I type python3 it says it is not recognized.

so is python actually python3? Or am I not doing something correctly?

Because when I run Sublime Text with Build -> Python3

I get this error:

[WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified
[cmd: ['python3', '-u', 'C:\\Users\\DELL-T3500\\Desktop\\python_work\\apostrophe.py']]
[dir: C:\Users\DELL-T3500\Desktop\python_work]

In Windows it's only python,do test with python and pip from cmd as in this tutorial
python3 is a command Linux distros use.
