Loading and Saving Projects on a Chrome Browser

A project can be loaded and saved in VEXcode GO in the following ways:

  • Create a New Project
  • Load an Existing Project
  • Open an Example Project
  • Rename a Project
  • Save Using the File Menu

Create a New Project

A new project opens when VEXcode GO is launched. But, a new project can also be opened from the File Menu.

Select ‘New Blocks Project’ from the File Menu.

Note: when creating a new project, a prompt will appear asking to save if the current project has not already been saved. See the ‘Save Using the File Menu’ section of this article for details on how to save a project.

Use the device’s interface to navigate and open your existing project. VEXcode GO will only allow you to open files with a .goblocks file extension.

If you try to open a VEXcode GO project file (.goblocks) by double clicking it, it will show the following error message:

All VEXcode GO project files (.goblocks) can ONLY be opened within VEXcode GO. View the ‘Load an Existing Project’ section from this article for more information.
