Problem with pip, using Python 3.6.5

Hello, I am a beginner in Python and I started about a week ago.  I would like to continue with Python, but there is a problem: I successfully added Python to path, so I could open MS Powershell and then type py to get started with some features like downloading modules with pip.  As I was told, I need to add pip to my path too and make a new environment variable. I copied the exact location of the file in this way C:\Users\Myname\Downloads\get-pip (get-pip was name of the file after download). I also tried C:\Users\Myname\Downloads\ Both of these options did not work. Then I thought that I didn't download it correctly. So I started as they wrote on their official website. After the first step MS Powershell showed me the following Error:
curl : Požadavek byl přerušen: Nelze vytvořit zabezpečený kanál SSL/TLS..
At line:1 char:1
+ curl -o
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.HttpWebRequest:HttpWebRequest) [Invoke-WebRequest], WebExc
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebCmdletWebResponseException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeWebRequestCommand
I use Windows 10. I would be very pleased, if you would answer me. If any additional information is needed,just tell me , I will try to do my best to provide it.

pip doesn't have to be in your path. You can change to the pip directory before issuing a pip command

But when I type py in Microsoft Powershell, python launches, when I type pip or pip3, only errors occur.

You might change the directory in the PS environment before you enter the pip command
what should always work is, that instead od typing pip you type.

py -m pip

Open in new window

if that doesn't work (so if pip is really not installed on your system) you can try to

download with your web browser and save it to any directory

cd <directory where you downloaded to>

Open in new window

Let's assume pip is already installed and you want to install for example the python module requests you should be able to type

py -m pip install requests

Open in new window

Can you also check whether date and time of your computer are set up correctly.
You might have some weird SSL errors if the date is off (for  example the year or month is not correct)

Hello,I tried downloading pip once again from and it downloaded. However, I don't understand,
  what do you mean by: cd <directory where you downloaded to>. I tried typing: py in MS Powershell and it said  
PS C:\Users\Andrej> py
C:\Users\Andrej\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36-32\python.exe: can't open file '': [Errno 2] No such file or directory. Then I tried for the second type, now instead of  py I typed py, pressed enter and then typed Powershell said:
 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'get' is not defined
I just downloaded pip and date and time on my computer is correct.
Before downloading pip:

Did you try already whether the command:

py -m pip

Open in new window

is working?

Normally you shouldn't have to download pip manually.

Not let's assume this doesn't work:  I try to rephrase my previous answer.

Depending on your browser setup and the browser that you use, downloaded files will be saved in a specific directory / Folder:

I for example use Firefox and configured it to prompt me every time I download a file for the directory to store it.
So if I would choose to download to C:\
then I would type in the cmd / or powershell window
cd \

Open in new window

to goto the directory where I can find
and only then I would type

Open in new window

if you configured nothing special then it will probably be in the default downloads' directory which is probablye something like


Open in new window

For me it would be something like
Then I would type
cd C:\Users\gelonida\Downloads

Open in new window

If your windows is non english then perhaps the folder has names in your language for
User or Downloads
