Fix Python – Running Jupyter via command line on Windows


Asked By – eleijonmarck

I have installed Jupyter on Windows 10, Python 3.x via

$ pip install jupyter

The installation works fine, even though I did restart the terminal.

But trying to run

$ jupyter notebook

gives the following error

'jupyter' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

How and where do I find the executable for Jupyter?

Now we will see solution for issue: Running Jupyter via command line on Windows


If you are absolutely sure that your Python library path is in your system variables (and you can find that path when you pip install Jupyter, you just have to read a bit) and you still experience “command not found or recognized” errors in Windows, you can try:

python -m notebook

For my Windows at least (Windows 10 Pro), having the python -m is the only way I can run my Python packages from command line without running into some sort of error
