    I think the heading pretty much says it all!
    I want to write a python program and I am typing it in Notepad. when I save it, it adds .txt to my filename "myprogram.py".
    How do I avoid that? (I know, it's a stupid question!)

    The save dialog box should have a dropdown menu which allows you to save the file as .txt or * (all files). If you pick the * option then you can have it save as .py.

    I'm not totally sure, but it is worth a try.

    I could have sworn I *had* tried that and it did not work!!! But I tried it again (gicing a new filename) and it did work! Doh!!

    thanks!! Your post at least prompted me to try again!!
