  • Hello Payton,

    the Page Inspector feature in Visual Studio 2015 has been removed, and has been replaced with a feature called Browser Link, plus the web development tools in many common browsers, such as IE's F12 tools. (To open these tools in Internet Explorer, open any web page, including one you built with Visual Studio, and press the F12 key.)

    The removal of the Page Inspector feature is discussed for example in this Connect bug submission:

    https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/1430179/i-cant-see-page-inspector-in-visual-studio-2015-enterprise

    The response there is: "Page Inspector has been retired in Visual Studio 2015 due to new tools that solve the same problem much better, such as Browser Link and Internet Explorer's developer tools."

    Hope this helps!
