Can't Set Parameters for a Script Tool

The setting:  ArcGIS 10.5.1, Windows 10 64bit os


I'd like to explore developing a script tool but have run into a road block.  I thought it was just me being a bone-head, but for once it's not. (I know, right?!)  


I downloaded a zipped toolbox and script tool from an ESRI page, just to see what's up with the procedure.  Toolbox works, as does the script itself. But...


Then I try to add a script to that same toolbox, using the same script (renamed to and when I get to the step where I am to define the parameters, the form will not accept anything I add.  I type in a value in the the display name column and when I tab to or click on the data type column, the name disappears.  I sent the script to a team mate of mine and he is able to to get it to work just fine.


I didn't find anything about this with a search, but I'm wondering if anyone else has come across this problem.
