This is my first time on the forum, so if I put this in the wrong spot, I apologize.
I am trying to figure out why Atom launches in the install directory when I am trying to create a new file from the command line. I am a CSCI student in an online class, my professor has posted instructions for launching Atom from the command line by changing directories to the CSCI235 folder and then typing: atom circleArea.cpp
In his video it launches Atom in the CSCI235 folder, but in my attempt it launches Atom in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\atom\app-1.19.4
I can navigate to save the file in the CSCI235 folder, but I am trying to figure out why it is doing it in the first place, and how to make it default to creating the file in the directory I am launching it from.
