Please help- new to VEX

Hi, I am new to VEX robotics
I found an already built VEX IQ with remote in a store cupboard at our school.

I have charged the unit and remote, but the screen says visit vex.com/OS

I have stumbled across some software called VEXcode IQ - v2.0.7 ??

If somebody could provide me with a very simple step by step guide on how to get my robot to work from this point- that would be amazing

Thank you in advance

Download vexos update. VEXos Firmware Updates - Products - IQ - VEX Robotics
Run the software, then plugin the brain to the computer.

Specifically, here’s the KB article on updating the firmware (which is called VEXos) in your VEX IQ system to resolve this issue:

Once the firmware is up to date, then you can use VEXcode IQ to write custom programs for your VEX IQ robot.
