Python was not found

Hello ATOM community, I’m new to programming and decided to run a simple program of printing Hello World. I did install the script package, looked up Youtube videos on searched through discussion yet am unable to execute, and it gives me an error stating :

Python was not found but can be installed from the Microsoft Store: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?linkID=2082640.

python_atom

I do get the python version from the cmd python command

Note: I do have python 3.8 installed and it’s by default added to the PATH variable
This is the directory of my python.exe file - C:\Users\santosh\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38\python.exe
