Shift+enter in Skills Network Labs does nothing

Hello. I’m enrolled in the IBM Data Analytics certification and am learning, or trying to learn, Python at this point. My first hands-on lab task is to execute print(‘Hello Python!’) using shift+enter but the only thing that happens is I move to the next cell.
What am I missing? Where is this supposed to print? I place my cursor at the end of the code then press shift+enter and nothing. I’ve gone through about 4 more labs after this one and can’t execute anything can someone help me? A web search shows it seems to be a common problem but I can’t find a solution that doesn’t have code in I don’t understand. I’m using Edge but get the same result in chrome.
I apologize if this is the wrong place but it has “lab” in the name.

I’m assuming if you had included the useful kernel information in the upper right of your window, it would say Pyolite or Pyodide or something indicating it isn’t a typical full Python kernel?
If so, see what I wrote here to a questions that was much the same as yours. Especially about being patient when starting the notebook.

I don’t know what’s useful or not I’ve never used Python or Jupyter. No idea what a kernel is or what the gray circle meant until I saw a clear circle in Firefox just now. The shift+enter is working Firefox so I’ll just use that for the labs from here on out.
Thanks for the help.
