When Intellij is installed, it automatically sets up a folder called IdeaProjects on the c:drive under users/username/ideaProjects. This is the default location of all new projects created in Intellij. 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.

As you can see, we've worked on two projects so far,…the "HelloWorld" and the "Grades".…Let's open up the "Grades" project folder…to see how IntelliJ organizes the files.…As you can see, in both the IntelliJ IDE in the background,…and in my Windows File Explorer,…it has a ".idea" folder, an "out" folder,…and an "SRC" folder.…Let's look at the "out" folder.…"Out". "Production". "Grades".…And there's the ".class" file.…
Remember, the ".class" file is the byte code for Java.…This is the file that gets created…when you compile a program,…and this is the file that is used…by the JVM: the Java Virtual Machine.…If I click on the arrow next to the "out" folder…
