I loved F12, but I know it's no longer used to upload and preview in a single step.
All I want to be able to do is see a file on the server. The real server, not a live preview or a local file. Make a minor change, hit a key, see it live. Wasted so much time on this I went back to DreamWeaver CS6 for simple edits.
If I right click on the file name in the files list (on remote server) and click "Open in Browser" it opens the index file every time - not the file I selected. If I right-click on the file tab and preview in browser, I get a display of the local file (file:///G:/Websites/whatever/test.html). Occasionally the same thing will open 127.0.0.1 server instance.
How do I simply see the file live with a click or shortcut? You know - open a site, fix a typo, upload and see the change? NOT view it live on Adobe servers - that often show a file I deleted an hour earlier and not the file I want. Not a local file. Not the WRONG file. Just the real website with the changed file.
What is so difficult about this? If I right click on as file on the remote server and select "preview in browser", to actually preview it in the browser, from the server.
I've used Dreamweaver for over a decade. Probably longer. Ready to go back to CS6 permanently. At least it still supports Cold Fusion.

I don't understand why you need DW to view a remote file. Just open your browser to the remote site's URL. If you prefer using CS6, keep using it.
