OK, so I can now get developer tools open, but in this video it asks me to create a new file, but I don't know how to do

that using a Windows PC and not a Mac. I cannot figure out how to create the new file called myscript.js

Are you using Workspaces?

If so, Right-click on the left hand panel and hit 'New File'. Name this file myscript.js

If you are doing this in an outside text editor, just open a blank file, hit 'Save As', and ssave it as myscript.js

Well if you are using workspaces create a new file by going to File > New File.

This is going to be similar if you are using a text editor like sublime, atom.io, or textmate.

If you have any other troubles let me know. :)

I am not using workspaces. This video is showing us using Google Chrome. On this video it tells us to create a new file called myscript.js using Google Chrome, and that is what I am having trouble with.

At :50 or so seconds into the video he creates the myscript.js file inside of textmate. You can do this locally or create a new workspace and follow along.
