Question from Ari G.: I recently bought my first computer with Windows 10 and overall I really like it, especially the Edge browser.
I do have a question about using Edge though, and I’m hoping you can answer it for me.
How do you view a page’s source code in Edge?
In all the other browsers I’ve used you just right-click on the page and click “View Source”. But Edge apparently doesn’t have that option.
Rick’s answer: I happen to like Windows 10 as well, Ari. And I really like the new Edge browser that was released along with it!
Luckily, Microsoft decided to simply scrap their old Internet Explorer browser and build a brand new browser from the ground up.
The result is Microsoft Edge, a very fast and lean browser that performs a lot better than IE ever did.
To answer your question, there are actually several options for viewing a page’s source in Edge:
The easy way is to press either the Ctrl+U key combination or the F12 key.
If you’d rather use your mouse just follow the steps below:
1 – Click the browser’s Menu icon in the top-right corner of the window (it looks like three horizontal dots).
2 – Click More tools.
3 – Click Developer Tools.
That’s all there is to it. Regardless of the method you used you should now see the current web page’s source code displayed in your browser window!
