I'm trying to open a txt file in python, but I'm having trouble. It seems to be working, but I cannot get the text anywhere. Here is the code, does anyone know how I can get the text from the hello.txt file?

f = open("c:/users/verzo/desktop/hello.txt")
print(f)

In other words ...

f = open("c:/users/verzo/desktop/hello.txt")
text = f.read()
print(text)
