In that case, you need to change the file association of .py files to IDLE
Yeah, I tried that. The worst part is we don't have any exe file specifically for IDLE. I mean windows has to choose whether to edit or compile.
In my case, the file associated with my .py files is python.exe (c:/python27/python.exe). I still don't understand why its not opening in IDLE.
If I am wrong, is there any special application (exe file) for IDLE so that I can configure to??
