Just installed Spyder using the stand-alone Windows installer found here.  Python (the one installed with the Spyder installer) works fine, but pip doesn't seem to be installed.  I've googled around and am mightily confused about what to do.  I find instructions for installing Spyder using pip (?), instructions for installing pip with conda (which I have not installed), but nothing on how to get pip installed with what I assumed would be the base case: After installing Spyder and Python with Spyder's stand-alone Windows installer.

Any help appreciated.

Hi,

If you want to use a package that doesn't come with our installers (like Seaborn or Scikit-learn), you need to install a separate Python environment and connect it to Spyder, as described here:

Cheers,
Carlos

OK, thanks.  I went with Anaconda.
