If the file associations are set correctly on Windows
(and they should be by the installer) then you only need
to double click the icon in explorere and it will run.
[ If on Unix then set the shebang line to point at python
for the same effect]
There are tools around for converting a python program into
an exe file by bundling the interpreter and libraries with
your script etc but personally I'd rather just install
Python along with my script...

Again this depends on the OS in use.
Assuming Windows then the simplest way is
However I have occasionally had strange error messages when
doing this - but it seems to work most times...
