It was suggested to me privately that I search for
right_click on "shell",
create a new key called "EDIT with IDLE"
and another called "command python.exe %1"
Searching on the HKEY group as above yields no "shell".
Did I not do it right, or is there another way?
(I would think that that command would execute my file, not edit it.
But maybe I will be surprised.)
(I am running Windows 7, 64-bit.)
