I am new to python programming. I am using atom IDE or atom editor for my python programs but every time I try to run a code or a script from my atom editor it gives me an error like :
 

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



I am using 64 bit Windows operating system and atom for 64 bit windows.

Can anyone figure out what the problem really is and how can I solve this problem and run my code.

Can you tell me which specific version of python you are using. If you can not then go to your command promp and run the command:

python --version

The main problem with your error must be Python command is not installed or listed on your path environment variable.

Please check your python path environment variable directory.

Check is there any file named :

python.exe

Try to execute the python file from the default installation directory.

If it is not working then uninstall and reinstall python 64 bit for windows.

And please make sure that in your directory the python path variable is not more than one.

And please reopen atom editor after you reset your path.
