AWS Credentials folder location
I am trying to install the Amazon Web Services Python SDK. I cannot find the ~/.aws/credentials folder on my machine though.
This is the page I am using for reference:
It says the location on Windows should be like: C:\Users\USER_NAME.aws\credentials
I've done pip installs for boto, boto3, and awscli. Is there something else I need to install to get a credentials folder?

According to the
link you posted...
Create your credentials file at ~/.aws/credentials (C:\Users\USER_NAME.aws\credentials for Windows users) and save the following lines after replacing the underlined values with your own.
With the contents
aws_access_key_id = YOUR_ACCESS_KEY_ID
aws_secret_access_key = YOUR_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
There's nothing you need to install, just create the file, and put that in. (obviously swapping out
YOUR_ACCESS_KEY_ID for your actual access key, and
YOUR_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY for your actual secret key ;) )
