Full Version: Idle from Windows console?

How can I get the same functionality as Linux in Windows so that when I open a terminal/console/powershell/command prompt (whatever Microsoft wants to call it) I can just type "idle" and get the python ide? I already have it setup in the path. I can run python from a console. I want to be able to do what I do in linux, from a directory launch a console, type idle, and get it to run from that directory. Getting Windows to launch a console from a directory has been another pain in and of itself, but that aside, has anyone else done this?
add idle's exe path to your systems path. It would be the same here except of adding python's exe to it, you would be adding IDLE's exe path
