Activate the developer console in Chrome (Debug) of a window in Electron.js

When developing our web applications, a tool that we always have at hand is the use of the browser's developer console to debug it. In Electron, we can also easily use it, for this, we have to activate it. in the BrowserWindow() object:

index.js

function createWindow(){
    let win = new BrowserWindow({
        width: 800,
        height:600,
        webPreferences:{
            nodeIntegration: true,
            contextIsolation: false 
        }
    })
    win.loadFile("index.html")
    win.webContents.openDevTools()
}

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
   <meta charset="UTF-8">
   <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
   <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
   <title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
   <h1>App Electron</h1>
</body>
</html>
