In the Internet, people only said pip install requests, but they do not say in which directory.  I only found one that said install in the script directory within Python. Well, that didn't work.

Hi Nate, 

  Thank you for your prompt reply.  I am just installing it on my computer with administrative privileges. I think I can go into the command line, but then I do not know which directory to go to type:  pip install requests

  If I have installed python 2.7.12 in the Program Files directory, and then there are many directories within the Python 2.7.12 directory, then which directory should I go to install the modules?

  I think my situation is indeed very simple.
