Use an editor (e.g. Notepad++), write your program and just save it as something.py . Double-click it to run

Which of these do you mean?

A. You downloaded python 3.4.2 as a zipped file or something, and don't know what to do to install it?
B. You downloaded and installed it, but don't know how to write a program and run it? (the question MinasKar answered)

In either case, it helps to say which operating system you're using: Windows, Mac OS, Linux, or something else? (and which version?)

Use notepad++ (or another editor) to write your program and python to run it. Without python installed in your computer, you can't run any of your programs.

Python usually comes with its own IDE called "IDLE", you should see it in the start menu. It may not be the best editor, but it will get you going.
