The key you're looking for is HKCR\Python.File\shell. Add a subkey
called Edit with IDLE. Create a subkey in there called command. Inside
HKCR\Python.File\shell\Edit with IDLE\command, modify the default value
to "C:\Python32\pythonw.exe" "C:\Python32\Lib\idlelib\idle.pyw" -e "%1"
(changing the paths if necessary). Do the same with
HKCR\Python.NoConFile\shell to get the command for .pyw files.
