I keep forgetting that Python is cross platform.
I use Windows 7.
After installing Python you can right click on a .py file and you get
a pull down menu.
The option for Edit with IDLE has an expanding menu.  The only item in
the pull down menu is..........Edit with IDLE.

So to run a .py program, you have to right click and select the pull
down menu Edit with IDLE and then inside that menu you pick Edit with
IDLE.  Seems a little redundant.
