Enabling the debug menu on Safari for Windows
Tuesday, 12 June 2007
I’ve been playing a bit with the new Safari for Windows and found a way to activate the debug menu that Mac OS X web developers were already used to.
You can enable the debug menu by editing the
Preferences.plist file which you can find in the
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username\Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari directory. It’s just an XML file. Use your favorite text editor to open it.
Then add the following key at the bottom, just before the final
Then restart Safari and you’re done!
Update: Alternatively you could also use one of the following command line options for the
/enableDebugMenu to enable the menu and
/disableDebugMenu to disable it. You only have to do this once, because Safari will remember this setting between sessions (it also stores this setting n the
Preferences.plist file that you can manually edit).
