Error in reocgnizing python in powershell

I have entered python in powershell and it shows active state python is installed. But when I type mkdir, It shows a line saying syntax error. Please help me with this. This problem occurs while I try to setup


Quit() out of python shell and go back to PowerShell or Press close on PowerShell and re-open.

Try it again now.

When you type “python” in PowerShell it takes you to a raw version of python 2.7.

C:\YouComputer: python

Python 2.7.12 (default, Nov 19 2016, 06:48:10) 
[GCC 5.4.0 20160609] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> mkdir

Wrong X…That is the RAW version of python compiler

To exit this mode TYPE;

>>> quit()

This Exits python back to PowerShell

C:\YouComputer: mkdir mystuff

^^^ Correct

On a good note, you installed Python correctly :space_invader:, which is annoying on Windows :+1:

Cheers tc
