Preview button not working in Workspace for this project? (index.html)

Within the Workspace, is it possible to use the Preview button (the "eye" icon) for this project (for example, for index.html)?

When I click it, first I'm presented with a drop-down list of possible ports to use. Regardless of which port I choose, I get the following error:

Workspace Unavailable This is a preview link for a Treehouse Workspace that is not currently active. If you are the workspace owner, you can launch it again via the Treehouse site.

(the example URL in this case is http://port-8080-z9pppud99s.treehouse-app.com/)

Thanks in advance for any guidance!

is not a really need for this course to preview it, but if really wanna see it you can also download the projects files and open the design html files with your preferred browser.
