I need to increase the font in my Inspect Element window in Chrome.

I found a tutorial on how to do it: http://k20e.com/blog/2011/08/18/how-to-set-the-chrome-console-font/.

According to the Chrome website, the User Data directory should be ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default, but I don't see "Google" under "Application Support".

Does anyone know where else the User Data directory could be?

My Chrome is up to date (version 23.0.1271.101). Running on OS X 10.7.4 Lion.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Are you aware that ~ means /Users/<username>? –  William Jackson Dec 21 '12 at 19:49
    
I didn't know that. Thank you! However, I don't see a "Library" folder inside my user folder. –  Nelu Malancea Dec 21 '12 at 19:56

@johnym That's because it's hidden by default on OS X 10.7 and up. –  Daniel Beck Dec 21 '12 at 20:21

Home/Library is a hidden folder on recent (10.7+) releases of OSX.

To get to the correct folder, do this:

  • Open a new Finder window
  • Press CommandShiftG
  • Type in ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

You are now in your profile directory. Click on the directory named User StyleSheets, and edit Custom.css to your heart's content!

Thanks a lot! The problem was that Library was hidden. I unhid it through terminal. I tried hitting the +1 button but I need 15 reputation points to do so. I appreciate your help. –  Nelu Malancea Dec 21 '12 at 20:23

Going to try converting @William-Jackson's comment into an answer.

Are you looking at: /Library/Application Support?
Or, are you looking at: /Users/*johnym*/Library/Application Support/Google.....?

The second one is where you should be able to find the user data directory.

Thanks! As I responded to @William-Jackson, I do not have a "Library" folder inside my user folder. –  Nelu Malancea Dec 21 '12 at 20:05
