Well folks, I'm missing something. I don't understand the correlation between the Python shell and the new window (as I just learned about to run a program). I know it's simple, but I'm just not getting it. I'm still working on the Prob Set 0. The lectures and reading material that I've read so far only deal with IDLE which is why I think I'm confused. While I can come up with something in IDLE, I can't in the new window (whatever that's called) to run a program. Basically, I feel like I have no idea what I'm actually doing, what the end result should be. Any help? Thanks in advance.

    You can edit you commands in Idle, which is a script editor. you can alsways go back to correct errors and do lots of editing in Idle. These are the things you cant do in Shell. If you want to run you scripts, you can press simply F5 and get your result in the Shell. Hope it revolves your problem.

    Oh, I see. So "Idle" is the first screen that comes up in Python and the "shell" is under "File" "New Window"?

    Technically, the "shell" is what comes up when you first run Python. When you open up a "New Window" you get what is essentially a notepad. In the new window you write up your script and hit F5 to run it in the shell.
