Why do I need to close and re-open my browser to make my code work when I make any changes to it in the workspace?

Every time I make a change to the code in my workspace it doesn't seem to make any changes in the console on the web page?

I have to close and reopen the browser every time to make it work any ideas what could be causing that to happen?

You should not need to close your browser, but you will need to refresh the page. Most browsers make this very easy to do. For instance, in Chrome, there's a button on the address bar with an arrow in a circle that you can click, or you can hit the keyboard shortcut F5.
