Question

The Codecademy environment isn’t showing the file I need for this exercise, what should I do?

Answer

If you come across an exercise, in this lesson or others, that isn’t showing the file you’re meant to be working on, try the following:

  1. Be sure you’re using Chrome!
  2. Press ‘Get Help’ in the bottom right and ‘I want to restart this exercise’
  3. If that doesn’t work, try clearing your browser’s cache and hard refreshing the page (cmd + shift + R on Mac, ctrl + F5 on Windows)

Also, if you ever accidentally close a file you needed open, simply press the folder icon at the top of the editor and find the file you want to open.
