Connecting with Python 3.8.3

I am having a hard time connecting with Python 3.8.3.  It gives me an error, and I think it is because in my detected python home directories I cannot acess the APPDATA folder that houses python, hence issue with my path.  

 

how do I access the folder even I am showing all hidden files?

 

it is visible when I go through my windows explorer, but not when I am going through my power bi desktop

I got it working, the issue was that i am using a remote desktop and had to ensure matplotlib and numpy were installed using a command window in the remore desktop.  it works now

Where is your Python directory? Mine is in:

 

C:\Users\gdeckler\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32

 

Of course, looks like I am probably running 3.8? Python is my new favorite language BTW, 🙂

Wait, why do you have double backslashes? 

 

Just open File Manager and paste this into the bar, just single backslashes
C:\Users\gdeckler\AppData\Local\Programs
