So I must have done something out of sequence or omitted some crucial step that led me to have the problem I just described because now that I have followed these steps -
- write this code in VSC
The Inner Planets
Saturn Neptune Uranus Pluto
- save code
- control / click on page and choose "Open With Live Serve"
- this opens the web browser window
- from this point on, any change in the title or body once saved, is automatically reflected in the browser window
This was my problem previously - that I would make changes - save - and nothing happened in the browser window but adhering to the steps above, I am getting the changes I expect so I guess that Live Server is now doing the reload for me automatically once I save the change in VSC. So I think I’m OK with this now - thanks for your insights!
