How to View the Source Code of a Web Page

You might want to view the source code of a web page, for fun.  If you are learning about websites you might want to look at source code. The source code can show interesting things about a web page. It can reveal how your page looks to the machines.

To find the page source: When you have an open browser click on View on your top menu bar. The option to view the page source is at the bottom of the list, after the Zoom options. Different browsers use slightly different names for the source code.

  • Firefox: View > Page Source
  • Safari:  View > View Source
  • Chrome:  View > Developer > View Source
  • Opera: View > Developer Tools > View Source

Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Internet Explorer are Browsers.
