    Hi guys,

    I recently started learning Python (still so baffled lol but let's not get into that) and I have installed Anaconda/PyCharm/Git onto my PC. I had no problems opening PyCharm up until now, and whenever I try to create a project it says that my interpreter is invalid and that I need to 'choose a valid Python interpreter'. Does anyone have any idea what this means/how to fix this?

    Thank you!

    It isn't finding python. Have you managed to run code from it before? Do you have a C:/Python* folder?

    Yeah I ran code a couple days ago when my lecturer helped set it up for me, it was just now that I tried opening it that this message came up. And I tried searching for that but nothing came up :/

    Try searching for python.exe and find out where your python is installed. Then in PyCharm open settings (ctrl+alt+s iirc) Search for 'Python Interpreter' Click local and point it to your pthon folder.
