Installing iPython on Win XP

I downloaded ipython-0.10.win32-setup.exe and began the execution. It seem like it installed components. It may have brought up a download for ipython-0.10-py2.5.egg some minutes later. When I noticed it I thought maybe I accidentally triggered its appearnace from the Start menu. I tried ipython from the menu to see what it might look like. I got a console window with messages of various kinds about a successful install and some general comments about features. It stated I should hit Enter to continue. That did nothing. I closed the window. What next?

Am I supposed to install the egg file? I thought I'd download it and try, but Win doesn't recognize it.

Looking a little further at this problem it looks like iPython was installed. I mis-interpreted some lines at the bottom. The very bottom one showed [1]. I didn't recognize that as a line prompt. The next question is whether one can accept a complete program. I suspect this is a purely interactive program, and it's total interface is the DOS like console? I see one must use properties of the Window to change its size. I would think there would be a way to make these the same each time? I think there's a tutor for this, so it looks like I need to visit it.

This is indeed a DOS prompt issue. Right-click the very top of the window and go to Properties. Upon exit, select that the changes should be applied to future windows "with the same title."
