How do I run a python program by double clicking an icon instead of running it via the text editor?

1) if you're on linux/mac, you have to change file permissions (chmod) to make it executable, then add the so-called shebang line at the start of your file, e.g.: #!/usr/bin/python3 You'll most likely also have to look up how to set the PATH variable on your system to enable python. 2) on windows, you create a shortcut to your python.exe, then edit it in order to append the path to your filename.py. I recommend looking it up if the concept isn't clear to you, since it's hard to explain without screenshots/video. 3) alternatively, use this from cmd/terminal to create an executable: pyinstaller filename.py -F note that -F creates a single file instead of a folder containing multiple files. you can also append "-i filename.ico" to give it an icon. for further information, I recommend the pyinstaller documentation. Note: option #3 will create an application that runs on any computer, even if python isn't installed. the other options obviously require python installed on your system.

You can't do this unless you do one of the following: Compile your python code to machine readable format. or Write an bash script to run the program with the help of the python interpreter.
