I'm taking the CS50 Web Programming course. I downloaded the zipped file and tried to run the cmd prompt to run the cd project0 command, but it shows no path to the directory when I try to open run the project command or touch index.html, even when I change the location. I was wondering if I should unzip the README file and drag it to my GitHub repository?

  • Sounds like you didn't "unzip" it. – DinoCoderSaurus May 23 '20 at 16:16
  • So after I unzip the file, how do I run the cmd "touch index.html", since I'm using Windows 10 and create a new index file for my repository so I can commit and just get started on the coding? I'm not sure what command to use since "touch" isn't proper syntax for Windows and I don't use Linux. I've also been using VS Code, but now I'm back to Atom because it's the literal complementary tool to Github. Do I download Github pages as well, since I already have Git(Bash)? – Alpha Eon May 24 '20 at 12:20
  • touch simply creates the file with that name. Save it from the editor, or right-click->New file. – DinoCoderSaurus May 24 '20 at 15:58

  • It helped a lot, thank you. I was able to create the file, with no problems. However, now I've run into another problem (this is the last one I'll ask you, thanks for all of your help). Per the request of the professor, I created a master branch in GitHub and am working off of Atom and GitHub Desktop. I copied the branch from the GitHub website to Atom and GitHub Desktop. I made some commits and changes,but because I only have one branch, I'm unable to pull or merge any conflicts/data. Should I keep trying to pull, create a new branch or just restart afresh? – Alpha Eon May 25 '20 at 16:22
