Disable the path limit length” is recommended after Python setup is successful.

The reason behind this [“Disable the path limit length“] is, if Python was installed in a windows OS directory with a path length greater than 260 characters, adding it to the path could fail. This is because, Windows OS, by default has the Maximum Path allowed for PATH variables as 260 characters.

Disable the path limit length” disables the MAX_PATH variable limit on Windows, therefore allowing you to use long Path variables (longer than 260 characters).

In Linux-based operating systems and macOS, the Path Length is not an issue.

Right now, Windows has the ability to accomodate long path lengths, so there is really no need to worry. The path length that is currently supported on Windows OS is 32,767, and it has been for more than 2 decades.
