    Can you make changes to the webpage through chrome and save it.  This is the company vendor who developed this site but allows employees to make content changes but not any way from tool to make html changes.  Someone on the vendor side said to use chrome developer tool to make the text bold.  Can you do this?  I work more with back end not heavy in css front end.

    Hi sbuggle,

    As far as I know, developer tools in major browser enable us to edit our HTML and styles in a live page. you could check the following links to know how to inspect and live-edit the HTML and CSS of a page using the Chrome DevTools Elements panel.

    the chrome developer tools do allow you to save changes, but only to a local folder, not the website. you still need to upload from the local folder to website. also this is only useful for plain html and css files.

    Of course, developer tool just enables us to edit HTML and styles in a live page in current user browser, which does not change web application on web server, so other users could not see your changes.
