I need a backup editor for IDLE, so I'm trying Notepad++. It looks nice, but there is no direct support for running Python.

What you have to do is click the "Run" menu item and then you type the command line for the Python interpreter. This should be simple; there are only to .exe files: python and pythonw.

The python.exe file brings up the shell, while the pythonw.exe brings up a black screen that very quickly goes away.

What do I do?

I would think: python(w).exe %filename%

or something like that. Is there a .bat file somewhere that starts everything off?
