i dont know i am new to arduino just started using it and when i open it it does not so for me it never worked

file is in the description @blakeblake11

Have you by any chance got the appalling Windows option turned on that hides file extensions ? If so then that may not actually be an .ino file at all and could be named something.ino.wibble for all you know but Windows will display it as something.ino

What is its name shown as if you right click on it and select Properties ?

I can open it here is the code:

//Arduino Human Following Robot
// Created By DIY Builder
// You have to Install the AFMotor and NewPing library Before Uploading the sketch//
// To install the libraries ( first download the AF Motor driver, NewPing and Servo Library zip file //
// then Go to Skecth >> Include Library >> Add .Zip Library >> Select The downloaded zip file >> Done) //
// Contact me on instagram for any question(Insta Id : DIY.Builder)

#include<NewPing.h>
#include<Servo.h>
#include<AFMotor.h>
#define RIGHT A2
#define LEFT A3
#define TRIGGER_PIN A1
#define ECHO_PIN A0
#define MAX_DISTANCE 100

NewPing sonar(TRIGGER_PIN, ECHO_PIN, MAX_DISTANCE);

AF_DCMotor Motor1(1,MOTOR12_1KHZ);
AF_DCMotor Motor2(2,MOTOR12_1KHZ);
AF_DCMotor Motor3(3,MOTOR34_1KHZ);
AF_DCMotor Motor4(4,MOTOR34_1KHZ);

Servo myservo;

int pos =0;

void setup() {
// put your setup code here, to run once:
Serial.begin(9600);
myservo.attach(10);
{
for(pos = 90; pos <= 180; pos += 1){
myservo.write(pos);
delay(15);
} for(pos = 180; pos >= 0; pos-= 1) {
myservo.write(pos);
delay(15);
}for(pos = 0; pos<=90; pos += 1) {
myservo.write(pos);
delay(15);
}
}
pinMode(RIGHT, INPUT);
pinMode(LEFT, INPUT);

}

void loop() {
// put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

delay(50);
unsigned int distance = sonar.ping_cm();
Serial.print("distance");
Serial.println(distance);

int Right_Value = digitalRead(RIGHT);

Serial.print("RIGHT");
Serial.println(Right_Value);

i know what is the code i already tried opening it with visual code but i wanna know why arduino can open it

it is .ino only

Try uninstalling and re-installing Arduino. The app may be corrupt.
