http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-00-introduction-to-computer-science-and-programming-fall-2008/assignments/getting_started.pdf Yes you are absolutely right. However in this document if I did not misread it, It says that all i have to do to run IDLE is type in idle in the command prompt line and it would run. However it gives me an error everytime I try

I had the exact same problem. I was looking for idle in the python folder (and tried from the command prompt). My friend showed me how I had to access it through the file path in windows. silly computers.
