    IDLE "Python"


    Have installed IDLE 2.6.6 via Synaptic using: sudo apt-get install idle and just by opening a terminal and typing idle the program appears.

    But when i have opened the IDLE program and at the prompt i type: print "Hello World!" and then go to File => Save As and save the file as howdy.py to my Desktop.

    Now when i want to run the file called howdy.py I open up the IDLE program and go to File => New Window => Run and finally Run Module. nothing?

    Could someone tell me what i'm doing wrong please. Should i save any Python files i create in the same folder where the Python or IDLE programs are stored?
