Step 3 − Python installation landing page is launched once the executable file is clicked. Click on the Install Now button.

Step 5 − We need to set the path of the Python and the Scripts folder (created inside the Python folder) in the Environment variables for Windows.
Step 6 − To verify, Python has been installed, run the command: python --version.
Step 7 − For the installation of the Selenium bindings, execute the command: pip install selenium.
Step 8 − A new folder named Selenium should get generated inside the Python folder. To update the current version of Selenium, execute the command: pip install –U selenium.
Step 9 − We should also have a Python editor - PyCharm to develop the Selenium scripts. This is available in the link − https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/.
