IDLE won't color code!

Please help!

this?

My first guess is that idle is opening files without the .py
extension. If that isn't it, what operating system are you using?
What version of python and idle are you using?

Since I prefer to keep all my installed programs in one place, I went ahead and installed Python in Program Files/Python. The command line shell seems to work just fine, and I'm able to import things like urllib and its dependencies. However, I can't get Idle to startup. When I try running it manually (i.e. python ...idle.py), I get...

For the past couple of months, Idle won't start when I invoke it. I am at a complete loss for why this is. When this happens, they python command line still starts, and python works fine otherwise. Most interesting to me is that a reboot won't fix the problem. But if I just try it again sometime later it will work. Anyone have any ideas? ...

I was recently defining a custom keybinding in IDLE 1.1 under Python 2.4 on WinMe. (I was using the simpler of the two binding definition interfaces.) When done, I hit the buttons for 'OK' (or however it is...

Any ideas as to what might me wrong? This is the...

When I double-click on "some.py" file console window appears just for a moment and right after that it's closed. If this script is started from inside of IDLE (F5 key) then it executes as it should be (e.g. executing all its print statements). Any ideas? OS: Windows; Python 2.3.4. Thanks.

If I want to write my code in a separate text editor (I like UltraEdit) but then press a single button to have that code run in the IDLE environment, is that possible?

I'm using IDLE for my Python programming. I can't seem to solve one issue though. Whenever I try to indent a region of code, I simply select it and hit the tab key, as I usually do in most editors, like GEdit or Geany on Linux, for instance, and it works fine. But, if I try to unindent a region of code, which i would do by pressing Shift-...
