Refresh button not working

Hello. Quick query...any time I update my code and click refresh in the browser, it doesn't work. The changes don't seem to be applied. However, if I close that browser window and click preview instead, it works perfectly well and the updates are performed. So not a huge problem, just wondering if there is a simple solution rather than having to close the browser window each time? I'm using windows 10 if that helps...? Many thanks Neil

Hi Neil,

It is tough to say what is causing the problem without seeing your environment. Some quick troubleshooting ideas...:

  1. Are you sure you are saving your CSS changes before you refresh the browser window?
  2. Have you tried other browsers, i.e. Chrome vs. Firefox?
  3. Do other CSS/HTML courses give you the same issue or just the course you are working on?

If the troubleshooting doesn't yield a solution, it may be another type of issue and you can contact Support to help you find a fix. Best of luck!


Hi. Sorry for the late reply. Turns out it was indeed a browser issue. Thanks for your help.
