The index.html links to the stylesheet "style.css" located in the css folder, but that stylesheet file is empty.

There is another file also named "style.css" in the home folder that contains a rule for the header element, but that one is not being used by the index file.

Delete the empty one and then move the other one into the css folder, and your styles should appear.

To see the results of changes made in the editor, you must first save the new version using the menu or Ctrl-S shortcut, and then refresh the page in your browser.

I've tried that but still won't update.i even rename style.css and changed that name on index.html and tried that before changing it back to style.css
