.gitignore will not ignore folders

I am pulling my hair out over this, I have a .gitignore file I coded up in vscode to ignore a venv and a few other things and literally nothing works. It works fine for Background.mp4 and Music.mp4, but for the life of me, I can't seem to get it to ignore the rest. Would really appreciate some answers.

Also, just a side note, I do not run git on my computer. Instead, I use GitHub desktop, because I find it a ton less convoluted, if that affects the answers somehow
