This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "This problem cannot or can no longer be reproduced. Changes to the system or to the asker's circumstances may have rendered the question obsolete, or the question does not include a procedure to enable potential answerers to reproduce the same symptoms. Such questions are off-topic as they are unlikely to help future readers, but editing them to include more details can lead to re-opening." – PolyGeo
I tested this on a machine with ArcGIS 10.4.1 for Desktop and ArcGIS Pro 1.3 (installed in that order) because http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/arcpy/get-started/installing-python-for-arcgis-pro.htm suggests the ArcPy install from Pro is done differently now.
The IDLE editor now opens predictably from ArcGIS for Desktop with Python 2.7.4.
