Software: Windows 8.1 , Python 3.6.3
Issue: IDLE isn’t invoked via Explorer .py files.
Attempts so far:
- Choose Default Program
SublimeText: Works every time
Python.exe (python cmd thing): launches the dos screen to quickly vanish
Pythonw.exe (python IDLE editor - what I want it to open in): Nothing happens.
- Right Click contextual modification
I attempted using Regedit for modifying of HKLR (key for opening .py filextn) to say “edit” instead of “open”, making the contextual edit menu read Edit With instead of Open With. I didn’t manage to complete the Regedit and make it read Edit With (it still says open with) - this attempt is a stub a requires expansion (help needed…)
- Reinstalling Python & Modules etc.
When I see YouTube videos/tutorials of other people opening python files from explorer, their context menus in explorer read “Edit With > Desired Program” as opposed to my instance of “Open With > Desired Program”. Could this be the root of all evils?
