Ultimate JavaScript Part 1: Fundamentals, 6- JavaScript in Node

I don’t understand how he runs the script in node in this lesson. He says to open command prompt if you’re using windows, which I did. Then to open the folder he mentioned earlier, I can only assume he means the folder we drug into the workspace in VSC. Then he enters a line of js-basic $node index.js

I don’t know if I’m supposed to do this in command prompt, node, VSC Terminal window, but in all the places I attempt to run that command (js-basic $node index.js) I get errors.

dont include the $ - the command is just node index.js be sure there is a file called index.js in the directory where you are running this command from
