Ask questions"Python not installed" diagnostic despite showing an interpreter in the status bar

Be able to create a folder or workspace for Python projects.
Popup error saying that Python is not installed.
[NOTE: Self-contained, minimal reproducing code samples are extremely helpful and will expedite addressing your issue]
I just started using VSCode. I installed the Python Extension (2020.5.78807). I have python 3.8.0 installed. I can confirm that by running python --version in the terminal in VSCode. The interpreter in the bottom left of the screen shows as 3.8.0. Command pallet shows the same interpreter.
I can create a new file and save it as a .py and it works with no issues. However, if I create a folder or a workspace and then create a file in that, I get a popup saying that Python is not installed (source: Python(Extension).
The code still seems to run ok. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension but no luck. Any thoughts on how I can get rid of this error?
