virtualenv install command not found on windows


I have a windows machine (I know, I keep trying to get the work to get me a mac)

I installed python, I installed pip

and I attempt to install virtualenv

I am using git bash (since its a nice interface that works like a linux terminal)

when I pip install virtualenv

pip install virtualenv 
Requirement already satisfied: virtualenv in c:\users\christopherjakob\appdata\local\packages\pythonsoftwarefoundation.python.3.9_qbz5n2kfra8p0\localcache\local-packages\python39\site-packages (20.13.0)

same when i use venv

but when i try and create a virutalenv

virtualenv secretsManagerMCE-IMPL-LAMBDA
bash: virtualenv: command not found

I have been searching and I have no idea what the fix is. I have seen similar stack overflow posts but none of them discuss developing on windows

>Solution :

The following command works on Windows:

python -m venv ./venv
