Ever since Python 3.6.1, trying to open a Python-source library module in IDLE on Windows (10) has not worked properly since the installer has only been providing *.pyc files. Learning how to use Python has always been easy since it (1) has a great help document, (2) makes it easy to get help() on objects, and (3) allows the source to easily be explored and/or patched. Is there something special that needs to be done to get both the standard library's *.py files and precompile them to *.pyc during installation?

I would be glad to run further tests if the Windows installer can be run headless with specific command-line arguments.
