I’m new to programming and installed tensorflow with my Python terminal, but I still need to make tensorflow accessible for Jupyter Notebook. How should I do that? When I try to enter any command into the Python terminal, I always get “SyntaxError: invalid syntax”
Hi @new_programmer and welcome! What is your operating system?
You might encounter an issue of having various Python installations at some point:
To make sure you don’t have that issue in future, you may want to use
venv - a virtual environment with an isolated version of Python (e.g. 3.x) with any compatible version of Jupyter (Jupyter Lab) and/or any other library, such as TensorFlow 2.7.

Hi @new_programmer ,
it’s not precisely the answer to your question,
but may I introduce Colab Notebooks, as a possible ‘shortcut’?
Colaboratory, or ‘Colab’ for short, allows you to write and execute Python in your browser, with
- Zero configuration required
- Free access to GPUs
- Easy sharing
Whether you’re a student, a data scientist or an AI researcher, Colab can make your work easier.
