How to Install Pygame (Windows 8/10)


In this video I explain how to install pygame, the python module, in windows 8 or 10. This is fairly simple and should not take you more than 5 minutes to complete. A lot of people think that in order to install pygame you must download the .whl file from there website. This is incorrect. Python by default comes with something called pip (package installer python), that will help you install it much easier.

  7. John Smith says

    Im stuck at 3:10. In the Environmental Variables on my computer, there is no link to "Path" in the User Variables but I did find it in the System Variables. I went ahead and edited this "Path" following the tutorial. Furthermore, my python directory doesn't end with 36. I typed it just the way its in my system. I continued back to the command prompt but still no success. Any ideas in this matter?

    I installed the latest python and did it with the path box checked just like you said but pip still isn't recognised as a command and it still won't let me download pygame?

  13. Beat My Meat says

    This still doesn't work, I've tried both 'pip install pygame' and 'python -m pip install pygame', thought they did install, my pycharm community edition says there isn't a module named 'pygame'

    Hi Tim. I have installed python 3.8.3 and pygame will not install.I checked the path box before installing. In the command promp I type in pip and there is something there. But when I type pip install pygame a lot of error messages come up.

  24. S Mupp says

    Legend! I hadn't clicked add to path. I found it easier to just uninstall python and then install it again, this time clicking the correct option. thanks for the help.

  25. OhGoodJobU says

    easier way to put it to path if you didnt already. go to the python installer, open it, click on "Modify" then press next, and then click "add to element variables". boom. (im not an expert i just tried this and it worked so if you have questions i probably will not awnser them)

  29. Lorenzo Corbella says

    guys, honestly, if you get the pip error, just modify python installation and check the "add path to environmental variables" box. It's much easier, you can do it in literally 30 seconds
