When Bluej is installed, it automatically sets up a folder with the Bluej executable. This is also the default location of all new projects created in Bluej. 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
