In short I am trying to download a third party package that is recommended for a program I am writing on the course. 

The text is

C:\Users\marka> python -m pip install "pyglet"
'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Hoping you can help

>Hello, I am currently doing an online course to learn Python. Generally ive followed it well and am enjoying my first go at programming. However the description of how to get modules from PyPi has left me confused. Ive only recently downloaded python so it already has pip installed. As I understand it I have to write certain text into the command prompt (I’m using windows 10). It tells me that python -m is not recognised.

In addition to the other two responses, please cut/paste the text from your 
command prompt showing the prompt, your command and the complete error message.
