    users python vs c:\python

    Hi all,
    I have an issue that's been bothering me for a while.
    I have python 3.8 installed on my laptop. I will try to import various modules from the python repository and I have a feeling that my path my been wrong.

    I have python installed here C:\python AND it seems like C:\Users\araki\>python (this is in the command prompt).
    1. What does the ">" greater than prompt indicate?
    2. Are these different paths?
    I adjusted my path/environment variable to point at C:\python, but this is still bugging me because sometimes I can't install a module in the correct location.

    FWIW, I think Windows10 "adjusts" the python installation and other programs to use ONE DRIVE. I hate ONE DRIVE. It always messes up my little scripts.

    I'm on a HP PAVILION, Windows 10, version 1909, and any tips would be grateful.

    If using the Command Prompt one can navigate to a folder [directory before Win95] and dir to get a list of files or type dir>dir.txt to get a text file listing of the contents that will show only a return to the prompt which can be used with the command of type dir.txt to view what was done. So the > is a redirection feature.
