I just downloaded and installed Anaconda on my Windows os. However, I am having difficulty in executing .py files using the command prompt. How can I get my system to know that the python.exe application is in the Anaconda folder so it can execute my .py files?

You have to use the Anaconda Prompt rather than the common Windows command prompt. Then go to your folder with the .py file and run:

 python myfile.py

But, if you need to use a normal command prompt you should put the path with you're python.exe which is in

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\python.exe

behind this one put your .py file.
