The documentation 
(https://docs.python.org/3.6/tutorial/interpreter.html) states: "Python 
installation is usually placed in|C:\Python36"|

On my install on a Widows 10 machine, I think it is installed in: 

This may or may not be a problem but it does cause concern for novices 
like me.

The problem I'm having is that I want to begin using Python to recreate 
a rather extensive program I created using Excel. Python being new there 
is lots to learn and this should be fun .... but I'm spending way too 
much time learning about setting up Python, setting up an IDE and 
setting up a GUI designer feature.

So you could say I'm chasing rats down rat holes and not making any 
progress against the fundamental problem of setting up a development 
tool and getting into Python.  And the discrepancy listed above appears 
to me to be another rat hole to chase.
