how to find source code without downloading files?

In this video Zac jumps to a page with all of the source code, but doesn't explain how he got here. I ended up downloading all of the files, but hate to do that as it takes up so much space. Am I missing an easy way to find the source code for a single example page?

thanks so much!

In Firefox, Chrome, and Microsoft Edge you can go to a website and right click on the page. You should see something that says "View Page Source", "View page source", or "View source" respectively in the context menu. Alternatively, in both Chrome and Firefox you can use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + U. I'm assuming this probably works in much the same way on Safari, but I don't have a Mac so I can't say for sure. This will open up a page in the browser showing you the source code for that page. Hope this helps! :sparkles:
