I selected "Add Python 3.6 to PATH" when I installed the program. 

I am able to launch Python from the start button. 

It isn't recognized on the command line.

See screen shots in the attached Word file.

A WM_SETTINGCHANGE message gets broadcasted to top-level windows, so Explorer should reload its environment from the registry. Did you start a new command prompt from Explorer?

Sorry, no I didn't.  When I went off to find out how to add Python to the path manually, I found out that opening a new command window would be needed to see any update.  I was coming back to say "never mind" when I saw your message.  

Sorry to bother you!
