    To view HTML files locally on your Windows computer with their connected external CSS files in Chrome, follow these steps:

    1. Directory Structure

    Ensure your HTML and CSS files are organized correctly. For example, consider the following structure:

    |-- index.html
    |-- styles
    |-- style.css

    2. Linking CSS in HTML

    Make sure your HTML file references the CSS file correctly. In your index.html, you would have something like this:

    <h1>Hello, World!</h1>
    This is a sample HTML file linked with an external CSS file.

    3. Viewing the HTML File in Chrome

    1. Open File Explorer:

    Navigate to the directory containing your index.html file.

    1. Double-Click the HTML File:

    Double-click index.html to open it in your default web browser (which should be Chrome if you’ve set it as default).

    Alternative Method: Open with Chrome

    1. Right-Click the HTML File:

    Right-click on index.html.

    1. Select “Open with”:

    Choose “Open with” and select “Google Chrome” from the list of applications.

    Verify CSS is Loaded

    When you open the HTML file in Chrome, inspect the page to ensure the CSS is loaded:

    1. Right-Click on the Page:

    Select “Inspect” or “Inspect Element”.

    1. Go to the “Network” Tab:

    Go to the “Network” tab in the Developer Tools.

    1. Reload the Page:

    Reload the page and look for the request to style.css in the list. If it’s loaded successfully, the CSS file is being applied correctly.

    Example Scenario

    1. Create index.html:
    <h1>Hello, World!</h1>
    This is a sample HTML file linked with an external CSS file.
    1. Create styles/style.css:
    body {
    background-color: #f0f0f0;
    font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
    h1 {
    color: #333;
    p {
    color: #666;
    1. Open index.html in Chrome:
    • Double-click index.html in File Explorer.
    • Or right-click index.html, select “Open with”, and choose “Google Chrome”.

    By following these steps, you can view your HTML files locally in Chrome with the connected external CSS file applied correctly.
