When Netbeans is installed, it automatically sets up a folder called NetBeans Projects. This is the default location of all new projects created in NetBeans. We can start by looking at the folders for the projects we created in the previous steps, then we will run some code that creates a new file and reads from an existing file. This gives us practice identifying where we need to store our files and how to reference them in our code.
