Question

Why does nothing happen when I press Run?

Answer

Any time the raw_input method appears in your code, the console is going to pause and wait for you to type a response and will continue executing the code in order after you press enter.
If you’ve typed a response and aren’t able to continue, or aren’t prompted for a response in the first place, please try the troubleshooting steps below:

  • Please use Chrome! It’s typically the most reliable browser.
  • Clear your browser’s cache and press Ctrl + F5 (Windows) or Cmd + Shift + R (Mac)
  • If nothing above worked, please go through our official troubleshooting guide or search the forums for similar issues.
