The first step is to import Everything from Tkinter module of python.

from tkinter import * #For 3.x.x Versions

main = Tk()

In the next step, I have created a variable called main assigned it to TK().For every Tk project first, we need to create this main to access the different widget classes inside the program.Here main is the parent window of the program.Whatever you wrote inside it,that will be displayed in that window only.So you should remember that this is mandatory for every program.

t = Label(main, text="Hello World!")

In the next line, we have to create a Label which typically has two or more parameters the first one is always for its root variable (main) and another parameter is used for different purposes.At present, we are using text parameter to write our text string and I have assigned the whole label to a variable called t.


Simply t.pack() method helps to fit the size of t Label to the root window.
