Uploading Files from Your Computer


You can use the AWS Cloud9 IDE to upload files from your local desktop or laptop computer into your AWS Cloud9 development environment. With your AWS Cloud9 environment [open](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cloud9/latest/user-guide/open-environment.html), on the menu bar in the AWS Cloud9 IDE, choose **File, Upload Local Files**. Then follow your web browser's onscreen instructions to upload individual .zip or .tar.gz files, or other files from your local computer, into the new environment.
