[New-bugs-announce] [issue46665] IDLE Windows shortcuts by default

New submission from primexx <primexx at gmail.com>:

In IDLE on Windows, there are certain keyboard shortcut idiosycracies in the default configuration. 

For example,

redo is ctrl+shift+z (standard elsewhere) rather than ctrl+y (Microsoft's standard)

de-indenting is ctrl+[ rather than shift+tab (also affects multi-line selected behaviour)

Request: adjust the defaults based on OS platform and use windows style by default on windows

If this is a dupe I apologize. I tried to search for an existing issue but wasn't able to find any with the keywords i can think of
