Installation Difficulty on 3.10.8

Hi, I just installed python, and watched multiple yt tutorials on how to get it to work. I made sure to click the box with the “add python.exe to PATH” too. However, when I try to do anything in the cmd prompt, I get the response, “server commands: [b]rowser, [q]uit.” Does anyone know how to fix this?

What do you mean by “do anything”?

Please copy and paste what you’re doing and wrap it between triple backticks like this:

Python 3.10.8 (tags/v3.10.8:aaaf517, Oct 11 2022, 16:50:30) [MSC v.1933 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

It seems you ended up in the Python documentation browser pydoc, @Nwinslow7
If so, quit by q (as prompted). Alternatively start a new, “fresh” command prompt. Then, as @MRAB suggested, start the interactive Python interpreter (“REPL” in jargon, if you need to Google it).
Good luck!
