Windows 10 - I have searched for a solution and found one for a Mac, that is of no help to me.

When editing a Dreamweaver page in Windows 10  the live view does not reflect the changes I make. I have to close/reopen the file to see the changes. I can preview in browser but both of these procedures are very slow and clunky. 

Any help appreciated.

1. Ctrl + S to Save.

2. F5 to Refresh.

3. Repeat as often as needed.

I just updated to DW 21. Now I'm only using it to edit an old .asp site but still works fine. Previously, when I would make some text changes in the Code View and then click on Live View above and I would instantly see the change. Now it doesn't change unless I use your method outlined above. That's quite a few extra steps. Is there a way to get it to update as it did previously automatically?

Thanks... Jeff

Jeff,

Live View has ALWAYS required you to Save & Refresh.

Switch to Design View from your Document Toolbar. See screenshot.

Oh.. Duh! 🙂 

Everytime there's an update I forget something about the previous settings. Thanks so much.
