# Using Jupyter notebookΒΆ

Jupyter notebooks provide an interactive way to work with Netgen/NGSolve.

If you are using Anaconda, Jupyter is already installed. Make sure to have Anaconda with Python 3.7 installed.

Using the Python package manager pip you can install Jupyter via

```
pip3 install jupyter
```

On Windows you just start pip. Make sure to install Jupyter for Python 3.x.

Now, download the first NGSolve Jupyter notebook `poisson.ipynb`

, and start

```
jupyter notebook poisson.ipynb
```

Step though the notebook by pressing "Shift-Enter" for every cell. A separate visualization window will pop up showing the generated mesh and computed solution.
