You are running the installer again, not the Python interpreter. Kindly
delete the installer file so this won't happen again.  Please see this
on-line documentation:  https://docs.python.org/3/using/windows.html.

Note that Python is an interpreter. It's not a GUI app, and it's not an
IDE. It requires a python script (program) to do anything. Again, see
the link above. Python does ship with a program called IDLE, which does
provide an editor and means of running scripts without using the command
prompt.  It should be in your start menu.
