Is there a way to clear Python’s IDLE window?

The “cls” and “clear” are commands which will clear a terminal (ie a DOS prompt, or terminal window). From your screenshot, you are using the shell within IDLE, which won’t be affected by such things. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a way to clear the screen in IDLE. The best you could do is to scroll the screen down lots of lines, eg:

print ("\n" * 100)

Though you could put this in a function:

def cls(): print ("\n" * 100)

And then call it when needed as cls()
