No, I wouldn't worry about it. It's of-course going to be helpful to know but for the purpose of this lesson no. I think they're trying to introduce the concept of accessing paths in your code. Glad I could help!

I think the focus here is on the use of Root-relative paths. I wouldn't worry about the command console for THIS video tbh. The ROOT-RELATIVE PATH I think of as a shortcut developers can use to access directories from links in our HTML. The "/" indicates the root folder followed by that directory or file's name, giving us direct access to the located content. This is useful when for working on websites with servers or a local server while testing. Hope this helps and makes sense.
