I can't find Ipython on my windows computer!

    This might be a silly question.

    I installed Ipython on my Python 2.7.2 but I can't seem to find the Ipython Shell. I tried typing "Ipython" in the command prompt but it wouldn't work.

    Open a DOS Command Prompt window and type the word 'set'. Look at the path variable. Is your Ipython directory (and/or its /bin directory) listed there? If not, then try adding it to your PATH through the System Properties -> Advanced tab -> Environment Variables.
