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,

  Well, I didn't tell you I am on Windows 7.  When I went to cmd, it was C:\Users\myname.  Then I navigated to where my Python was installed C:\Program 
Files\Python 2.7.12>

  Do I type pip install requests at the end of the arrow, or do I have to go somewhere else?  

Thanks a bunch!
