python2 not recognized on windows 10?

So pretty much I downloaded python 3.4 and I need to use the "python2" command to run a python file. I've attached the screenshot of the problem. Can you guys help me out here, is it because my version is 3.4?

If you need python2 to run your program, you will need to install python2.7 .

Of course, you should make sure you actually need python2, since so much software is now for python 3.
