OK, Python doesn't have any windows so you must be talking about
some kind of add-on tool - like IDLE maybe? If so please be specific 
about which tool, which python version, which OS (MacOSX here
I assume) and exactly what you did - which menu, command key etc you used.

Again using which OS, which python version, which tool?

What exactly are you downloading? How are you installing it? And how are 
you running it?
