Q: pip says it was installed correctly, and I've updated the PATH variable as shown, but the pip --version command isn't working. Why?
A: Depending on your computer's setup, you'll need to restart your terminal/command prompt before the additions you've made to the PATH variable are respected. With some setups, even that won't be enough, and you may need to restart the entire machine before you are able to use the pip command directly.
