RStudio:  RStudio works well and is the easiest to install.  The website to download RStudio is http://www.rstudio.com/ide/download/   (this is the easiest)

I use the “Download RStudio Desktop”, which downloads the following version: 


RStudio 0.97.551 - Windows XP/Vista/7

  

This downloads the file RStudio-0.97.551.exe which can be used to install RStudio.

 

Documentation for RStudio is at http://www.rstudio.com/ide/docs/using/console.

Short Cuts for this IDE are at http://www.rstudio.com/ide/docs/using/keyboard_shortcuts.
