Where do I type the python command? How do I "open my terminal"?

Sorry, I know these are probably dumb questions, but I am a complete beginner... In the teacher's notes, it says to start a Simple Web Server "Open your Terminal (or console)" and type in the python command given. I don't even know where to start with these instructions.. Please help!

Hi there, David Litman ! This is going to depend largely on your operating system. If you're using macOS, try hitting the CMD + spacebar and using "spotlight" to search for terminal. This will help you open your Terminal app. If you are using Windows try searching for cmd.exe. This will help you find the command line console for Windows.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
