After searching the web for hours i didnt yet find an answer to my problem. I am using Python 3.6 and i cant import selenium. I always get the message “No module named ‘selenium”
I tried everything, i first downloaded selenium from this website https://pypi.python.org/pypi/selenium/3.6.0 .

Then I tried python -m pip install -U selenium and didnt work either. I tried some other things that people said but they didnt work either.
Im using windows 10.
Any help?
