How do you get the IDLE working?

I'm using Wing Pro and when I click on the Debug Console tab and I try to enter in a command like print ("Hello Sherry") and then press Enter, the window says Cannot execute: No debug process.

How do I fix it?

Or do you gotta use the Python Shell instead of the Debut Console?

The Debug Console is used when you're debugging something and are stopped at a breakpoint or exception. It implements a Python Shell that interacts with the live program state at the frame the program is stopped (possibly up the stack, if you move upward in the debugger).

The Python Shell is probably what you're looking for. You can enable debug in it from its Options menu.

Or, you can start debugging a selected Python file from the Debug menu.

I'd recommend going through the Tutorial in the Help menu to get an idea of what is available and how it is used.
