I've just downloaded the latest version of Python (3.6.5) from After installing, I launched it and I found out the app has no icon. Then I tried to download Python using different link, but it was the same as the first try.

For me, 3.6.5 IDLE has the same Python app icon (white notebook page with blue/yellow snakes) as always.  But I upgraded from 3.6.4, etc, so my Win10 machine already had the icon.

Filip, which Windows (in case it makes a difference)?  Which *exact* installer (there are two you could have used).
