Python with a black background

I wanted to start programming on python and watched a lesson for it, while a man in the lesson had python version with white background and buttons on top like “File” or “Help”, while i downloaded the most recent version of it and it had black background and i can’t write multiple strokes of code, also no buttons on the top. What version am i supposed to download??

I believe, that what you are seeing is the difference between a Python shell (a kind of command line interpretor, which may have a black background, depending on the system configuration) and a IDE (Integrated Development Environment) which may have a white background, again, depending on the system configuration.

There’s no difference in the version of Python; simply how it’s being used.

The shell could look like this:

Python 3.6.9 (default, Jun 29 2022, 11:45:57) 
[GCC 8.4.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

… but, again, it’s system dependent.

To add: you need to say what computer OS you’re using, as there are differences between how things are done with a MS Windows OS, MAC OS and Linux OS

The IDE might have been IDLE.
