Python shuts down when I try to run a module

This is an unfortunate property of running command line programs on
Windows. If you run the script directly (like by double clicking on it?)
the console window will close when the program is done, so you can't see
the final output.

To get around this you could run them in the IDLE editor, which comes with
Python 3.7 for Windows, or you could open a windows command prompt and run
your Python scripts from there.
