Easy. Make a desktop shortcut which includes the parameters, etc.
People do that all the time, including for GUI apps such as Internet
Explorer which have some optional command-line shortcuts.
The only thing you have to do is make sure that the Windows machine
associates files with the .py extensions with the Python interpreter.
The easiest way is to right-click a .py file, select "Choose an
Application," select the Python runtime, and check the box for "always
use this program.
