Hi Mia,

That's the correct way to open the console and the error you're seeing actually indicates you're in the right place!

Does the error include the text favicon? Like:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 :8000/favicon.ico:1

If so you can safely ignore this error. This is due to Treehouse trying to load an icon for the tab which isn't part of your workspace and has no bearing on your code.

I know this is late, but this same thing happened to meβ€”make sure you've linked your script.js file as instructed in the previous video. If the JavaScript file isn't linked, it's just going to show you your HTML page, so no JS errors to view in the console!
