I am new to this so I apologize if my question is a bit silly.
I'm trying to restart from scratch with an Arduino Uno starterkit I played around with a few years back. I installed the Arduino software and connected the board to the laptop (OS: Windows 10) and then wanted to install the driver. According to the Arduino website this driver should be available in the Arduino install folder. However, on windows 10 the Arduino software is installed as an App in a closed folder and I can't figure out how to gain access to it.
So instead I tried to just accept whatever driver the OS has felt was appropriate for the board, set the right COM port and run the simple "Blink" example. But nothing happens. I know the board works because its happily blinking away with some previous instruction I gave it in the past. So basically there appears to be no connection and I suspect that it has to do with the use of the wrong driver.
I am sort of stuck now. Can anyone help me out?
Thanks in advance
