    Windows 10 Pro 1903 - Python, Path variables, and the Windows Store annoyance


    Alright, so this is my first post and it is in regards to an annoyance and how Windows 10 Pro 1903 update is ignoring my Path variables.


    I have installed Python3 from the python.org site because I like having control over my applications and the Windows 10 Store is not something I like to use for that. Prior to the 1903 update I was able to use my Python install just fine. I have uninstalled python completely and reinstalled. Rebooted multiple times. Manually edited the PATH variables. Windows 10 still opens up the Windows Store when I try to run `python`/`python.exe`. This is getting really annoying because I don't want to install the Windows Store version.


    If anyone knows how to get this working right, please let me know. Thanks


    Here are some screenshots.

    System environment variable won't stick


    Running Win10 Home on an Acer Spin 3, 64bit, i7cpu. I try to add a path to the system environment variables by:

    1. Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Environment variables

    2. The "Environment Variables" window opens.
    3. In the "System Variables" pane I select "Path" and click the EDIT button.
    4. A list of the current system paths is displayed.
    5. I click the NEW button, browse to the path I want to add which is "C:\Python36-32" and click OK. The path "C:\Python36-32" is added to the list of current system paths.
    6. I click OK and am returned to the "Environment Variables" window.
    7. I click the "X" at the top right to close the "Environment Variables" window.

    Now if I click the "Environment Variables" button again (end of step-1) and repeat steps 2-4, the new path I added in step-5 is gone. IOW, adding a new path won't stick.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
