Why do he mention ctrl+shift+i and not the simpler f12 method?

It's mildly annoying when doing it for weeks and discovering f12. I believe the ctrl+shift+i method was mentioned very early on in the front end track as well.

I didn't know you could use F12 as a shortcut. You learn something new every day. Thanks!

Probably because he isn't / wasn't aware of this shortcut ? I didn't know that neither, thank you for the tip :)
