React router installation - MODULE NOT FOUND

I’m trying to run the App in the Basic Routing with project. I’ve installed react-router-dom, installed the dependencies, and whgen I type in npm start to actually see the app, I get this error everytime:

Error: Cannot find module ‘C:\Users\react-scripts\bin\react-scripts.js’
at Module._resolveFilename (node:internal/modules/cjs/loader:1077:15)

code: ‘MODULE_NOT_FOUND’,
requireStack:

I have no idea where the ‘C:\Users\react-scripts\bin\react-scripts.js’ location came from. That seems like an incredibly stupid place for react to store react-scripts. I never configured anything to go there, and I don’t know where I can change this. I’ve checked all over the forums, and there’s nothing about this project from the past two years. What’s going on here?
