You have not opened it in Python if you can see the code. You have opened
it in some text editor (perhaps IDLE, the default Python editor that comes
with every Python distro?). If you've opened it in Idle, go and look for
the Run menu option (press F5). If you've opened it in some other text
editor, try double-clicking on it in Explorer. If that doesn't work, make a
new plain text file in the same directory as that calculator, call it
"run.bat" and open it in Notepad.
Write in it:

start "c:\python23\pythonw.exe" calc.py

(replace the python23 path to the path where you installed python and
calc.py with whatever the name of that calculator is).

Save the changes and then double-click on it.
