[Tkinter] Tkinter wouldn't work with python3.8.3
#1
Hi, I am new to python and Tkinter, I have a very simple code to run see if everything works.

But it seems that it only works with the default python MacBook has, which is Python 2.7
When I try to run it with python 3.8 it only pops out a blank window with a black background.

Here is my code:
import tkinter as tk
window = tk.Tk()
greeting = tk.Label(text="Hello, Tkinter")
greeting.pack()
window.mainloop()
Does anyone know why I am having this problem?
Thanks in advance

You probably do not have tkinter installed for python3.8
I welcome all feedback.
The only dumb question, is one that doesn't get asked.

first see which version of python you are running
from command line: python -V
If it's not python3, try: python3 -V

if neither is python 3, you either don't have it installed, or it's not in you path or environment.
if one shows python 3, using that one, from command line type: python or python3
you shoud be in interactive python. type: import tkinter
if it returns without error, then tkinter is available.
