Saving plots to desktop

Hello again, @ralphd2.
Another way which you can save the plots, though plt.savefig("name.png")may be easier, is to first stretch open the output window until you can see the controls at the bottom,


by default the output window may not display these.

Then click the save button

,

it’ll then bring up by default the home/runner directory
look for your repl’s name

Then, within that folder you can save the file as you wish

and then it should appear in your file tree, where again you can download it to your desktop. This way may add a few extra steps but could offer more versatility.

As a side note, if you experience issues with the output not working, as some other users have been reporting, consider using the Python Data Science template instead of the normal python one.
