The shortcut to view the console on Safari isn't working... Am I missing something here?

Hello, The shortcut to view the console for errors on Safari isn't working... Am I missing something here? I'd love to be able to use it on both Google Chrome and Safari if possible, but the shortcut doesn't seem to be working on Safari. :(

Hi Daniel,

I don't work with Safari (I'm strictly Chrome). I figure the shortcut will be different depending on the Browser, so what works in Chrome won't necessarily work in Safari. But if you go it the long way (through the menu bar), there should be the keyboard shortcut (if there is one) beside the command.

Hope you get it figured out. :) :dizzy:

Hello Daniel,

I personally use Chrome and Firefox (mostly Chrome) but searched Google and found a great Apple resource for keyboard shortcuts. I hope you find it useful as I do. Many listed I didn't know.

Take care and happy coding! Tina
