New submission from Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu>:

I have Python and hence IDLE 3.8, 3.9, 3.10, and 3.11 installed.  When I right click a .py file, and then on "Edit with IDLE >" the sub-menu only has '3.11.0a4' listed.  This negates the purpose of having a submenu.

I did some search of previous issues and see a) that I have had more than one version listed before, but b) there have been previous issues with some missing.  I don't know if #27603 has any relevance.

I discovered this when investigating the report at
For that, clicking on the submenu worked for 3.9 but not after upgrading to 3.10. Clicking for me opened the file, but there was only one choice.
