To do that, open a windows explorer window, go to >Tools>FoldersOptions>FileTypes.
Find .py file type, click 'Advanced' and add the command:
"C:\Python25\pythonw.exe" "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\PsychoPyIDE\PsychoPyIDE.py" "%1"
Now you can right-click files and open them in PsychoPy, ready-to-run :-)
