adding workspace file index.html does not create the index.html tag in the console, it just says treehouse:/workspace.

I followed the steps on the video however when i create the folder labelled index.html, it does not show up in the console at all. i tried typing it into the console but this didnt work. what should i do?

Hi Joshua,

Make sure you're creating a new file, not a folder. Right-click in the left pane, select new file, name it index.html, and hit enter. It should open up in the main editing pane right above the console.


Sounds like a good place to start! :)
