!!  That worked!   Uninstalling AVR MBoards / then reinstalling and picking UNO worked.

I have no idea this was necessary and how it helps.  Can U Explain?  Thanks!!

@gtmize I can not. What it means is that somehow certain files were deleted. It MAY be a failed update, but that would be a failure only on your PC as it didn't affect everyone else.

Happy to hear you got it working.

Don't forget to mark the Topic Solved.

@gtmize I forgot it was 3. Did you copy one machine to another? Or maybe a virus?

@gtmize Earlier you said 'it must have been the updates'. What updates are you referring to?

@gtmize Delete the boards and re-load it.

@gtmize Did that fix it?

I don't know one way or the other if there is a tutorial on the IDE, but I imagine if you go to Arduino.cc you will find it.

I don't think I can remember anyone else having the problem you keep having.

Thanks ... it may be related to the IDE not recognizing any of my Nano s?

@gtmize Check your 'Settings' make sure the line

https://espressif.github.io/arduino-esp32/package_esp32_index.json

is in the list of Additional Boards (see pic).

Then click the Boards Icon on the left and select (see pic2) You may need to stop and start the IDE but that is how you get the NANO set up.
