OK, thanks to Marc's quick response, it looks like we have conquered the elusive zombie dialog window. So let's try again. Note that the download file name has changed to avoid any confusion:

As of 2021-11-03, the macOS installer file on for the 3.10.0 release has been updated to include an updated Tk library that includes this fix. All other files installed by the installer are the same as in the original 3.10.0 installer, other than the Tk libraries and the installer ReadMe file. This updated installer pkg, at, is now the default download for macOS from and appears on the 3.10.0 release page ( If you have already installed the original 3.10.0 universal2 installer pkg from and are encountering this problem with file dialog windows on macOS 12 Monterey, you can download and run the updated installer pkg to obtain the updated Tk libraries.

The updated Tk will also be included in the macOS installers provided with the next Python releases: 3.9.8 (expected to be released this week) and 3.10.1 (planned for 2021-12-06), as well as the 3.11.0a2 development preview.
