Opening Node developer tools just got easier

Using the command palette in Microsoft Edge, you can open Dedicated Devtools for Node

Microsoft Edge has a command palette which allows you to run commands by typing. You can use this to launch Developer Tools for Node.

  • Press `Ctrl+Q` to open the command palette
  • Type `>`, `node` and press Enter

Alternatively, you can always use the old way to access Node devtools using `edge://inspect` and clicking the link.

This is being currently rolled out in Edge, so if you don’t see it yet, you need to go to edge://flags and turn it on:
