Q: Why can't I create a .nojekyll file?

A: Depending upon your operating system and platform, you may have certain restrictions which make it impossible to create a .nojekyll file through Finder or Windows Explorer. Usually you’ll receive an error message that informs you that files starting with a “.” are system files and that you lack the permissions necessary to create one. If that’s the case, you’ll need to create the file through a Terminal window or bash prompt. Here’s how you do it:

1. Open a Terminal window if you’re on a Mac, or the bash prompt from the Github client if you’re on Windows. 
2. Navigate to the repository’s root directory.
3. Type the following at the prompt: $ touch .nojekyll
4. That’s it! The next time you make a commit and push to the master branch you should see your new .nojekyll file.
