[python] How to start Spyder IDE on Windows

I downloaded spyder using the

pip install spyder

in my windows 10 32-bit operating system, but i dont see any desktop icons or exe files to start running the IDE. I downloaded spyder 3, any my python is 3.6. I even tried creating a shortcut of spyder.exe from the Python3.6/Scripts folder, but it won't open.

This question is related to python pip spyder

The answer is

The name of the spyder executable was changed to spyder3.exe in python version 3. I install pyqt5 and spyder via pip and was able to launch spyder3. I first tried without installing pyqt5 and nothing happened. Once I installed pyqt5, then spyder 3 opened.

Try the following from a windows cmd.exe prompt:

    C:\Users\..>pip install pyqt5
    C:\Users\..>pip install spyder
