How to emulate and display a mobile device from a PC in Chrome
I think the problem with website design is the display test on mobile devices when it is created with responsive design. Since the WordPress theme of this site is also responsive design, it is essential to test the display on mobile devices and tablet devices. At that time, “Developer Tools”, which is a standard function of Chrome, is convenient. This article describes how to emulate a mobile device display with developer tools.
How to use developer tools
After opening Chrome on your PC, open the website you want to test display on your mobile device or the website page of your local environment.
Go to “Google Chrome Settings”-> “Other Tools”-> “Developer Tools” in the upper right corner of Chrome and click. Then the Overview screen will be displayed on the right side of Chrome.
Emulated display method for mobile devices
Click the mobile terminal emulate icon surrounded by the red frame in the upper right of the above figure. Then, the website you are currently viewing will emulate what it looks like when displayed on a mobile device.
You can select the mobile device you want to emulate by clicking the pull-down list of devices to emulate in the upper left of the above figure. By setting the selection item of the mobile terminal to “Responsive”, you can also check the breakpoint when making a responsive design.
