If you are getting the following error when running "import requests", you need to follow this tutorial to install the "requests" module.

C:\fyicenter>python
Python 3.6.2 (v3.6.2:5fd33b5, Jul  8 2017, 04:14:34) [MSC v.1900 32 bit (Intel)]

>>> import requests
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests'

1. Check installed modules with "pip" command:

C:\fyicenter>pip list

pip (9.0.1)
setuptools (28.8.0)

2. Install "requests" with "pip" command:

C:\fyicenter>pip install requests
