How To Install a Python Beta On Windows 10

Hi everyone! Python is one of the best programming languages out there, and every Python beta brings some really cool features, so, let’s take a look at exactly how you can install the beta version of any Python version on Windows 10!

Starting off, understand that the beta version of any software could be buggy, glitchy, and may have other issues inside them, so install it at your own risk.

First off, we want to install pyenv, this is a very easy way to manage our Python versions within our Windows PC. To install this, we want to install it using the following brew command:

brew update
brew install pyenv

Once installed, we can use the following command to actually install a version of this Python beta, here is a basic command of install a Python beta with pyenv:

pyenv install DELETETHISANDPUTPYTHONBETAHERE
pyenv global DELETETHISANDPUTPYTHONBETAHERE

If we were to install the Python beta for Python 3.11, we would use the following command:

pyenv install 3.11.0b3
pyenv global 3.11.0b3

We can also use the following command to check the current version of Python:

python -V

This should output the version of Python that you’re on! There you have it!

Thanks So Much!

If you’re new to your programming journey, feel free to check out some of the books that I’ve written, my goal is to teach you how to code without you getting bored:
