Python 3..9.0

You're not doing anything wrong, but clearly it's not what you want to do.  You are running the Python interpreter and not specifying any script to run, so it opens a command prompt and promptly closes it, I'll bet.  

What you want to do is open a development environment.  Try Idle, it's there in your Python installation.  Or download PyScripter, or Jetbrains' PyCharm, or Wing  (see recent new version announcement).

I just downloaded the above for Windows but am unable to get it to run.? I have gone to the directory and double-clicked the "python.exe" file but that just brings me to the command prompt.
Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?
Thank you.
