I am opening a html file with Chrome, Inspect Element on the page and change something. Then I save it to the same or another file and when I open it, it's unchanged. I do not understand why? I am doing something wrong ? My goal is to modify a few values in a table and save the changes to the html file.

You can not save HTML or CSS changes directly using Item Inspector , but only JS changes as explained on sitepoint. If you still want to save HTML changes following dirty steps:

  • Make your changes
  • Go to HTML node (or Root node in Item Inspector).
  • Hit F2 or right click -> Edit as HTML Select all text (Ctrl+A) and
  • Copy (Ctrl+C) Save using notepad or any IDE
