Getting started with pico explorer

I have managed to get Pico Display working with Python Rainbow example. Taking what I have learned I have been trying to get the Pico Explorer working. I have downloaded the Pimoroni software loaded ok but I cant any of the demo software to run. I seem to get a background glow on the built in screen - but that is all

Can you help?

These examples?

And using this uf2 file?
Release Version 0.2.2 · pimoroni/pimoroni-pico · GitHub

Thanks @alphanumeric All working now - tried the balls example. Very impressive. Its a lot easier when you are able to move beyond a blank screen. Appreciate the assistance.

Ah, that’s good to hear. Its easy to click the wrong link and use the wrong examples. Or have the wrong uf2 file loaded. I’m assuming it was something like that that messed you up.
Anyway, now you can have some fun, enjoy. =)

Have you see this tutorial?
