Another Windows Gripe

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

I've got Python 3.7 installed on my Windows 10 machine. I should be able to, after adding it to my system path, be able to run python3.exe from PowerShell, CMD, whatever, and it should run the executable. Right?

So why is it, when I run python3.exe from the shell, instead of launching Python it opens the Microsoft Store and sends me directly to their Python installer page?

I know why they're doing it, it's just bullshit they do.
