These are the various "workarounds", I've used or heard:
1. Open using "Edit in IDLE", close it; then open IDLE properly from
Start Menu and open your file from the list of "Recent files"
2. Shift-RightClick on the folder, get to "Open Command Window Here".
Use python interpreter from there to execute "python -m idlelib.idle
3. create a .bat or shortcut file in your working directory to start IDLE
4. [GENERIC WARNING: Editing registry may damage your system] [SPECIFIC
WARNING: There must be a reason the IDLE devs put the -n flag on the
context menu, I'm not fully aware of the complications, and I disclaim
myself from any damage that may be caused] Open Registry Editor, browse
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Python.File\shell\Edit with IDLE\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Python.NoConFile\shell\Edit with IDLE\command
and remove the -n flag from the commands
