PythonWin provides basic integration with the Windows Explorer. All .py and .pyw files shown in the Windows Explorer have an Edit option on their context (i.e., right-click) menu. Selecting this option starts PythonWin if it isn’t already running, and opens the file for editing.
You can also drag and drop files from the Windows Explorer into PythonWin. These files are also open for editing.
PythonWin has also been registered with
Windows in such a way that it can be run without knowing its specific
location and without having it on your system path. If you select
Start → Run from the Windows taskbar and enter
pythonwin, it’s correctly located and
started. From a
command prompt, you can also execute the
any directory, and PythonWin starts. See the previous section, Command-Line Parameters.
