Hey I'm new to Python (just started to learn this magnificent language) and during my online course I tried to create a virtual environment and got the error on the attached file.
I tried even to re-install Python and Visual Studio and yet I get this error. Can someone help me?  
I'm using Visual Studio code and Python version 3.9.5

This site is not a help forum, it is for tracking bugs in the implementation of the CPython reference interpreter.  You'll have better luck somewhere like, the mailing list, or the #python IRC channel on Libera.Chat.  If you take your query to one of these other forums, it's best to copy and paste error messages as text to avoid excluding people who can help you but either can't see a posted image or refuse to open an image that could turn out to be anything at all :)

That said, my suspicion is that things are going wrong with OneDrive somehow, or possibly (but less likely) with the non-ascii path.  Try creating your venv somewhere like `C:\Users\oz180\venv_test` instead.
