A developer console is a tool that logs information associated with web pages, such as javascript, network requests and security errors.

The information displayed in the Developer Console can be very helpful for the Stackby Support Team when we are trying to figure out to solve an issue. While solving the issue the Stackby Support Team may ask you to share the screenshot if the Developer Console.

To open the developer console window on Chrome, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+J (Windows) or Ctrl+Option+J (Mac)

Or you can use the Chrome menu in the browser window, select the option - More Tools and then select - Developer Tools.

To open the developer console on Safari, you will first need to turn on the Develop menu. To do this, open the Safari menu in the Mac menu bar, then select Preferences.
