Unless you specifically selected "install for all users" it's probably
going to be installed to your home directory under the hidden folder
"AppData," specially "AppData\Local\Programs\Python."  Be sure to tell
the installer to put python in your path--that way no matter where it
is, from the command prompt you can just run "python" and it will fire
up the interpreter.  Additionally, "Idle" (the integrated development
environment) will probably be in your start menu.
