So I was starting to do the course from scratch and whenever I got to the first ls -1 command, I couldn’t move forward, it said something about the test must pass, I read all the hints and it was very clear to me that I had to write ls -1 as the next code. So whenever I tried to refresh my screen to see if there was an error, I was back at freeCodeCamp where I click “Click here to start the course” and then “Run in CodeAlly”. I did both and the next thing I saw was the assistance for continuing with the course was gone, only the terminal and the “getting started” page are there, and I don’t know how to reset it or bring that window back up. It’s frustrating first because the ls -1 code was not going through and then because there is no easy way I could find to open again the helper.

In my experience, after starting a course (provided you have not logged out from freeCodeCamp), you should just be able to re-open the course. Then, once the VM has re-started, you can start CodeRoad, and open up the menu to select the latest-passed lesson.
I’m not quite sure what you mean by “restarted the guide” - you restarted CodeRoad I’m guessing.
There’s a bug I’ve been trying to fix where the tests get a little messed up from time to time. If that’s the issue, there’s a way around it, but it’s tough to explain and is probably more of a pain than just starting at the beginning again. There’s instructions how to start over here. You’re not that far into the tutorial, you should be able to catch back up in a few minutes. Here’s some motivation if you’re feeling frustrated. Keep in mind that these are in a beta stage, and the bugs are still being worked out.
You may notice that you can’t see the instructions displayed on the screen during an exam because they are covering the video area. To fix this, click on the green bar at the bottom of the course window. This will open a setting where you can adjust the position and size of the display to fit your needs for your course.
