Why does the embedded Workspace for challenges not resemble the Instructor's?

I am on part 179 of the Front End Development track and the instructor is first of all telling me to download a bunch of files from a link next to or underneath the video. Unfortunately I do not see that link. Also, even if I were to find that like, download those files, and unzip them, the instructor(Nick Pettit) is telling me to drag and drop them into the 'file area' to the left of text editor in the Workspace. But, my Workspace that Treehouse has embedded in the challenge only has a text editor with no 'file area'.

Anybody know what I'm talking about? Thanks!

Hi Mitchell,

The 'file area' should be at the bottom section of the dark grey area on the left side of the Workspace. It will highlight as a box when dragging the files over. If you do have any further questions about this, please feel free to email us at help@teamtreehouse.com, and we can provide more details.

Best, Kara


Thank you so much for getting back to me, and so quickly too! Unfortunately, There is no 'dark grey area on the left side of the Workspace.' The Workspace is all I have. I know I am just missing it somehow! I'm such a noob :( I wish I could include a screenshot! Any further advice? Thanks again!

Sincerely, Mitch
