I have released my new course on Udemy, Kubernetes By Example. Sign up now to get free lifetime access!

 

It comes included with python 3.4.

 

it is something that you run from the powershell command line rather than within python terminal itself, e.g.

[powershell]
PS C:\Users\Mir\Desktop=> pip install -U selenium
Downloading/unpacking selenium
Running setup.py (path:C:\Users\Mir\AppData\Local\Temp\pip_build_Mir\selenium\setup.py)
egg_info for package selenium

Installing collected packages: selenium
Running setup.py install for selenium

Successfully installed selenium
Cleaning up…
PS C:\Users\Mir\Desktop=>
