Node:fs not found while all code running in node

I was runing a test script for a much larger program running entirely on node. I was testing the ‘rename’ module through npm. Here is my code:

const {
} = require("node:fs")
rename('./1.txt', './2.txt', )

Does anyone know what I can do to prevent this error:

Error: Cannot find module 'node:fs'

fs(File system) is an internal module in itself, so you can use it by just requiring it:

Method 1:

const fs = require("fs");
fs.rename('./1.txt', './2.txt', )

Method 2: By restructuring the rename function from the fs module

const {rename} = require("fs");
rename('./1.txt', './2.txt', )
