No longer able to run programs (Java) on console via typed commands

Hey there. How do I make the console run programs via command (not the run button)?

I’m taking a Java course from that specifically says to not use the run button, but to type commands in the console (i.e., "java

Now, the console only has a run button and I am not able to type in the console at all. I have tried looking through settings but I haven’t found anything that gives an option to remove the button and reinstate the command line. I don’t think I did anything to cause this change, but of course I could be mistaken.

Super frustrating, and I won’t be able to complete the course’s final project until I address this issue.

I appreciate any help with this!

Hey @angelaahutchiso you can use the Shell instead here.

Thanks for the tip!
Still wondering what happened to the console. The console option was removed from the new tab menu. There’s still a button on the left panel menu, but nothing opens when I click it. Pretty strange, seems like something is being worked on under the hood.

Using the shell does not work for the commands that Sophia tells you to execute.

Disregard, I had to navigate to the location of my program. The java then worked beautifully.

Sophia really needs to update their curriculum!
