@buildinteractiveNov 21.2022 — Here's one quick method for downloading the CSS file of any website:
  • Open your web browser and navigate to the desired URL.
  • Right-click and choose "View Page Source" to view the site's HTML.
  • Search that code by looking for a .css file (there may be multiple). On Windows, the search shortcut is Control+F and on a Mac, it's Command+F.
  • Once you locate the CSS file path, copy it and paste it into a new browser tab.
  • At that point, you can browse the CSS or download it locally by saving it (Control+S or Command+S).

Note: the CSS code might be minified and difficult to read in that format. You could copy-paste that minified CSS code into a tool like Prettier.io to make reading it easier.

Alternatively, you can right-click a website and choose "Inspect". That'll open up a handy way to browse both HTML, CSS, and other web languages. You can also click the "Sources" tab in that view to locate the CSS file that way.

Hope this helps!

@JamesMerchantMar 06.2023 — It is easy and tricky work to download CSS files from a website. To download the CSS file, here in below have some step-by-step processes to download it, you can check them.

1. Open the website in the web browser and find the CSS file you want to download and open the developer tools (usually by pressing F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I).

2. In the developer tools, switch to the "Network" tab.

3. Reload the webpage if necessary to capture all the requests made by the browser.

4. Look for the request that corresponds to the CSS file you want to download. The request will usually have a URL that ends with ".css". Click on the proposal to view its details.

5. In the details pane, look for the "Response" section. This section should contain the contents of the CSS file.

6. To download the CSS file, you can either right-click on the file contents and select "Save as...", or copy the CSS file URL from the request details and use a download manager to download the file.
