The instructor is showing installation on Mac, I can't find how to install Scrapy on a Windows version of PyCharm

The instructor in this video moves very quickly through the locations to install Scrapy. But I am working on a Windows machine and I can't find "Preferences" to install Scrapy. Does anyone out there know how to do this for the Windows version. I can't proceed.

Thanks

Hi there, Nancy Melucci ! On Windows, the corresponding menu is found under File -> Settings. Alternatively, CTRL + ALT + S should also open that same menu in Pycharm.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
