Hi. Out of curiosity, I tried to install.packages("tidyverse"). After several minutes of output, it ended on an error with dependencies (googledrive, googlesheets4, haven, httr, rvest, xml2) and the removal of the package. What to do then?

Do you want to install from sources the packages which need compilation?

After starting a new project (for my work) and the 'getting started' master for this course, I still do not have a 'scripts' window in either project. All other three windows are there: Console/Terminal, Environment/History & Files/Plots/Packages/Help. Why am I missing the Scripts window?

Sorry, answered my previous question - had to do 'New File' & Script for that box to pop up.
