Not Understanding the Installation Steps When Using Provided Files
I am trying to use the provided starter files for this project located inside Setting up with Create React App/scoreboard.
Guil starts this video by saying that you need to run npx create-react app scoreboard. Do I need to do this step as the downloaded files already contain a folder called scoreboard? If I do, which files should I move from the downloaded from Treehouse files and put into the new 'scoreboard' folder that I created with the command? I guess I am just not sure if Guil already installed Create React App into the provided files from Treehouse.

Per Guil's comments, you do not need to run the npx command - he is simply showing us what command he ran in order to prepare the files for our use in this course. The first command needed is the install command.
npx create-react-app scoreboard creates a new project called scoreboard, with none of the information in the files that Guil's project scoreboard does. Essentially, npx create-react-app starts a new project with the skeleton files already started
