How to import anything under the specified map?

I used the command ‘pip install requests’ in order to place that module on the specified map \C:\Program Files\Python’ (under Wiondows 10). Apparently it is automatically placed op the following map ‘C:\Users…\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python39\site-packages’. I dislike that. I wonder how I can place it on the former map in such a way, that several users (within my pc) can use that module.

And further I wonder me how I can update any module via pip, without , that it willm again placed on the latter map disliked.

Howdy Pejamide,

try “python -m pip install …” - whereby “python” should be the full path to the python executable in whose environment you want to install. So in your case probably “C:\Program Files\Python\python.exe -m pip install requests” or similar (I do not know the actual path, in your system, by heart:)…

Maybe the following link might be of further help too:

PS: also note, that “pip” and “pip3” might be different pips…

Of course I have done so. See the following result:
PS C:\program files\python> pip install requests

PS C:\program files\python>

Further my system PATH does contain:
C:\Program files\python>Scripts and C:\Program files\python

What should I have done wrong?

Executing pip from the path C:\program files\python is NOT the same as executing the python.exe in said path with the option -m and the belonging pip argument, so please try:

C:\program files\python.exe -m pip install requests

and if this does not work

C:\program files\python3.exe -m pip3 install requests

or alike. To make it clear: it might not be enough to just be in said directory, use the full path to the python.exe you want to use and do not use pip standalone!
