python file not natively recognized by the python application

Asked by Bullet on 2020-03-16

hello everyone I realized that by downloading the python application, for my part version 3.8.2 on the official website and after installing it on the command line, that the .py files are not recognized natively by the python application, the python application icon does not appear I am forced by bizarre manipulation to make my file executable, it is really a hassle for programming, I am obliged to make a copy of my original file which I managed to get recognized (under ubuntu) time although badly and to modify it, if someone could fix this bug would be fine
