Usually, just clicking the "Launch Workspace" button in lower right does the trick. Can you elaborate a bit more about what kind of problem you are experiencing?

At the bottom right of the screen right underneath the video, there is a button that says "Launch Workspace", this button will then open up a new tab separated from the tab that your video is currently in and that's where you can start!

Hey Carl, are you getting something like a welcome document, there should be a default file at the left side of your screen (File Explorer). If not, you can right-click in the file explorer and create a new file. Just make sure the extension of the file should by '.py'. For example - hello.py.

I hope this solves your problem. 🙂
