Getting started with Docker for Windows

My goal is to develop python programs on Windows 10 with Docker for Windows integration (Docker Desktop). I want to start with a very simple setup. I have the software components installed, with the Docker integration plugin. Under Settings->Run Configuration Templates for New Projects->Docker->Docker Image I have [Image ID] = python:latest and [Container name] = Python. So the [Command preview] = docker run --name Python python:latest.

PS C:\Users\billmccormick> docker images
busybox latest db8ee88ad75f 5 days ago 1.22MB
python latest 4c0fd7901be8 2 weeks ago 929MB
hello-world latest fce289e99eb9 6 months ago 1.84kB
docker4w/nsenter-dockerd latest 2f1c802f322f 9 months ago 187kB

But I can't figure out how to use the interpreter from that image in new projects. I'm using Linux containers, but switching to Windows containers doesn't seem to do anything.

Any ideas?
