Bootstrap Download - which one is which?

Hi Coding Gang,

I have a question about Bootstrap and downloading it. There seems to be so many options and I am new to Bootstrap so wanted a little advice.

The question I have is I have downloaded the compiled CSS and JS ( files and they run fine with my Visual Code editor. However, I noted that at the top of the Bootstrap page ( there is a download option (top right) which lets you download (which is 2.1megs). What is that? I’ve downloaded it but have no idea what the files are?

I may be asking a stupid question, but hey, I am learning!

You don’t have to download Bootstrap if you don’t want to. They have a cdn that you can just link to in your project.
