If python command is not working in visual studio code’s terminal window. You can follow below steps to setup PATH variable
Set up Path variable only for this visual studio code session. Run below command in visual studio code terminal where “C:\Program Files\Python36” is python install directory. You can choose a different one based on python version installed .
$env:path=“$env:Path; C:\Program Files\Python36″
This is just a temporary fix and I recommend Step 2 which will make the command available permanently.
