modulenotfounderror no module named ‘tkinter’

Sometimes while importing tkinter, we see the error stating ‘modulenotfounderror no module named ‘tkinter’’. This is a very common error we generally see due to some reasons stated below.

The ‘ModuleNotFoundError’ error means that the module you are trying to import cannot be found. In this case, it looks like you are trying to import the tkinter module, but it is not present there.

There are a few reasons why this error might occur:

  1. You might not have tkinter installed it on your system.
  2. You might be running an older version of Python that does not include tkinter by default.
  3. You might be using the wrong name to import the module.
  4. If you are using a virtual environment, make sure that the environment has tkinter installed.

How to solve the modulenotfounderror error

This generally happens due to the absence of the tkinter installation in your system. Try to install it using the command:

pip install tkinter

Make sure you are using import tkinter and not import Tkinter (note the capital “T”). Long time ago, the capital T (Tkinter) was used but now it is called with small t (tkinter).

If the module is not installed in the virtual environment, you can try running pip install tkinter while the environment is active.
