I have successfully installed qiskit. However, when I try to run a simulation I get the error "No module named 'qiskit'
from qiskit import QuantumCircuit, QuantumRegister, ClassicalRegister, execute
How can I get or enable this module?

pip install qiskit or
pip3 install qiskit in cmd or Anaconda Prompt to install the qiskit module. Then try running the command you used.
If it's still not working check whether your notebook is working in the same location where you installed the qiskit module.
from qiskit import * as it saves time and imports all the packages in qiskit.
Alternative: You can also use the jupyter notebook in IBM Quantum Experience.
I believe this is a path issue. As already mentioned
pip3 install qiskit
will install the full package and configure the paths for you.
You can find the search paths for all Python modules by
import sys print(sys.path)
If the full path to your Qiskit package is
'/full/path/to' is not in
sys.path, then you need to append it by
in the script you are running. If you are running on Linux, you can write
.bashrc file so that you don't need to set the path every time.
