Works as designed. You are proceeding from a false assumption. pythonw.exe
is not meant to provide an interactive Python shell. A little Web research
would have showed that to you.
(First hit for “pythonw” on Google with my account. I have never visited
that site before or can remember to have searched for “pythonw”.)

I do not know IDLE well (if at all after all this time). Make sure that you
have installed the prerequisites. But it strikes me as odd to run a GUI-
based application from the Windows command shell. Is there not an icon that
you can use instead to run it? Presumably that would execute a .bat or .cmd
script that sets up the PYTHONPATH. RTFM, STFW.
