Sending the Support team a screenshot of the developer console

When troubleshooting issues one tool that can help us work out what's happening is your browser's developer console.

The developer console logs information associated with a web page, such as JavaScript, network requests, and security errors. Information logged in the console can help our support team to solve any issue that you may experience. If you've been asked to provide a screenshot of your developer console, here's how to do that for the browser you're using.

To begin with you will first need to open the console. There are instructions below on how to do this in some common browsers.

Google Chrome

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Mozilla Firefox

 

Google Chrome 

To open the developer console in Google Chrome, select the kebab menu (the 3 dots) in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window and select More Tools > Developer Tools.

The console will either open up within your existing Chrome window, or in a new window. You may have to select the Console tab.

Microsoft Edge

To open the developer console in Microsoft Edge, open the menu in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window and select More Tools > Developer Tools.

You can also open it by selecting Ctrl + Shift + i.

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Press CTRL+SHIFT+J or F12 to open the console window.

Select the console tab if available:

For Internet Explorer, it may be advisable to enable recording of developer console messages. To do this go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced, then in the browser section check Always record developer console messages.

Mozilla Firefox

To open the developer console in Firefox, click on the menu in the upper right-hand corner of the browser and select More Tools > Browser Console.

You can also use the keyboard shortcut Shift + CMD + J or Shift + Ctrl + J.

Once you have the console window open you should see any error messages that have been recorded:

Then take a screengrab and send it through to us attached to your support ticket.
