You probably didn't choose "add Python to your PATH" when installing
(it's an option, that's off by default). You can manually add Python
to your PATH (if you don't know how to do this, there are plenty of
resources that can help - it's a fairly basic thing you need to be
aware of if you're using the command line), or you can reinstall, or
"repair" your installation and select the option. Or you can use the
Python launcher, py.exe, which is on PATH and which will launch Python
for you:

* Run python: py
* Run pip: py -m pip
