I'm teaching kids to code in Python. Today we had two boys, one with Windows 8, the other one with Windows 10. In both cases Python 3.5 was installed and the automatic path where files are saved was C:\Windows\system32. This wasn't possible, since it cannot be written to. Yet, the boys tried to save files to it. 

In the Windows 8-case the file did not get saved. Yet, IDLE still refered to the file as having an error (it couldn't find the turtle package because the file was called - we got that right eventually). Even after reinstalling Python it still refered to the non-existing file and the error in it. 
We changed the path and it solved the problem. Hope this can be fixed.
