IDLE is your IDE.

As @pepr said, the only IDE available through the standard installation is IDLE. Which is not exactly an IDE, but more of a dedicated editor. If you want a real IDE, in the likes of Visual Studio or Eclipse, you will need to look for: pycharm, wingware, Eclipse plugin for python, PVTS for Visual Studio, or use multipurpose editors like SublimeText, Notepad++.

I see. IDLE is actually a set of tools. What you see is the Python Shell. It is black and white only when you did not type anything. Try to type >>> import this and Enter:
Python Shell
Use Open file and you will see the editor window with syntax highlighting. The truth is that there is no special debug window. When sticking with the core, you can use pdb from your Python shell. But it is probably not that great experience.

For Notepad++, opinions may differ, but I consider it a very nice editor (but it is editor, not the debugger). I do not use Python editor. I am working the way I do not need it. I suggest to follow Water's suggestions.

As far as I can tell, Python dev environment is a set of building blocks: You install the language runtime, you choose the IDE that allows you to edit your code better, you choose how to use the debugger options available. it is all up to you, and requires a lot of reading to decide what is the best for you. For example, I code using SublimeText, and I dont use a debugger, I have log files being generated with the level of information needed, as the type of code I write does not requires to debug interactively.

Ok, the first part of my question is answered: there is no debugger.

Does netbeans with all options selected download

work with python for debugging?
