The term 'auto-py-to-exe' is not recognized error while converting the .py file to .exe

After I finish my python project, I tried to convert it to .exe file so I use python version 3.10 I already installed the auto-py-to-exe app from the cmd but when I want to open it I get this error

>Solution :

Check if you added Python and Python Scripts to your PATH.

  1. Search for "Edit the system environment variables" (Windows Search) and click the first result
  2. Click "Environment Variables…" in the window that opened
  3. In the "System variables" section double click the "Path" variable
  4. In the window that opened click the "New" button and type C:\Python310\ there. Create another entry and type C:\Python310\Scripts\ there.
  5. Click "OK"

Now open the command prompt (make sure to not open the terminal) and type in auto-py-to-exe or autopytoexe, both should work.
