When I try to run python, it asks me if I want to save it or not. So I clicked yes, like I always do, but nothing happened. It didn't run at all. I keep trying, but still it won't save.

What exactly do you type/click and where?

Okay, so in the first picture, you see the * up there in the title right? That means that it needs to be saved.

So then, I click on the run button, which shows four more buttons:
Run Module
Run... Customized
Check Module
Python Shell

So I click on the Run Module button, and this thing pops up that says 

Source Must Be Saved
    OK to Save?
Okay          Cancel

So I clicked Okay, and it doesn't run at all.

And it still shows the * there.

Thanks for a very precise report. Have you tried to manually save your file (File > Save As)? Also, how did the file get that name (

Sorry for this issue, IDLE 3.8.5 has a known (and now resolved) issue with saving if the file was empty when opened (see #41373). If this is not your problem, please do come back and say so, but otherwise this issue should be closed as a duplicate.

For anyone who finds this issue, it also affected 3.9.0b4/5.
