No response in python shell

Whenever I put an input in the shell, I don't receive a response. I even did a simple print("Hello, World") function and just received no response.

Are you running the Python shell in Workspaces or on you local machine? Is the prompt in the Python shell a triple greater-than (>>>)?

Starting from the Linux shell prompt, it should look like:

$ python
Python 3.6.3 (default, Oct  3 2017, 21:45:48) 
[GCC 7.2.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> print("Hello, World")
Hello, World

Can you post a screen capture or cut-and-paste?
