save, Save as, Save Copy As are not responding in IDLE in the scenario created a PYTHON FILE from by renaming the new text document. now i wrote some content and trying to save. but, it's not responding.

Would you mind please checking if #41373 is the problem you describe? (apologies about this issue, we are having relatively lots of reports about it but the fix won't be distributed until 3.9.0/3.8.6)

The first save fix is in 3.8.5. The second fix is in 3.9.0rc1, released 2 days ago.  In the absence of specific information otherwise, I am assuming that this is a duplicate of one of the two no-save causes.

A copy of what I wrote elsewhere.

There are two possible reasons in 3.8.4 and 3.9.0b4 - non-ascii
characters and files created outside of IDLE.  Non-ascii chars was fixed
in 3.8.5 and 3.9.0b5.  Files created outside of IDLE work in 3.8.6, due
in September and 3.9.0rc1, released today.  If you do not need 3rd party
modules, use the latter.  If you do, create new files within IDLE with
File=> New.
