but it is not working

Hello, @mega3707257709! Welcome to the forum.
Did you type ls in the far right panel after the $ prompt, and then click enter?

same thing happened to me, if I type 1s, it doesn’t work, if I copy the 1s written by them and paste it in, it does… No idea why…

It’s ls not 1s => lowercase L and s not the number 1 and s. It’s a command that is short for list.

No worries. The distinction between l and 1 is pretty subtle, and without a coding background it’s pretty easy to mistake what the instructions are asking for.
