I have my Mac to open ".py" files with IDLE.  If IDLE is not running, and I double click on a Python file, the Shell window opens, then the Python file I clicked on opens in front, but the Shell has keyboard focus.  In order to edit or run the source file, I must click in that window to give it focus.

I have made a two minute video that is available here as a private video:

Thanks for your consideration.
