Using VS Code, Downloaded files show up as DS_STORE Files?

Hi All,

I thought I would try and follow along using VS Code just to get used to using something other than Workspaces. I am on a PC, and I downloaded the files and unzipped them. I then tried to open them into VS Code from the file manager and they seemed to load, but I think I've missed a step somewhere, as the file type says DS_Store? And when I open the file on VS Code I get symbols?

DS_Store is created for Apple computers. You can just ignore it or delete it.

The actual files for the project are broken up into various subdirectories. Each lesson/video has a directory that starts with a number (e.g. 2-async-programming-and-callback-functions/). In VS Code you should open the "start" directory. Then if you want to check your code against their solution you can open the "final" directory which contains the final code.

I hope that helps.

Good luck!

HI Tim,

Thank you for the advice, once I went back and clicked on the start directory, the code opened just fine. Now I had tried to import the whole project file into VS Code, surely that would have loaded the start directory as well?
