I am using Python 3.7.2, macOS Catalina 10.15.5.

When I double click a .py script from the Finder, it opens it, along with IDLE shell. When I click a second .py script so I can view both at once, it won't open the second one.

Almost certainly Catalina - tcl/tk issue.  Fix difficult and unknown.  Won't make 3.7.  In the meanwhile, use IDLE's file=> open menu.  See original issue 38946 for more.
