Make a file in text editor?

Apologies in advance if this is a silly question with an obvious answer. I just started coding today and I’m not sure what it means by making a file in a directory using text editor? I used the terminal to mkdir mystuff and then cd mystuff but in the text editor it says no file exists? This is for excercise 0 on windows. Thank you.

Hi.

mkdir makes a directory (folder) and you certainly into it, as you have. You haven’t made a file yet, only a folder based on your description. If you are terminal, you can touch ex01.py to make the empty files.

Or are you using Windows/Powershell?
