    3. You will see the files matching the keyword, open them one by one with any code editor to locate the needed one. Disregard .css.liquid files as only styles are set there.

    4. Having found the correct location, you can edit the files from the admin in Themes > Customize theme > Edit HTML/CSS.

      For example, to edit Featured Products, we should open Themes > Customize theme > Edit HTML/CSS > Templates > index.liquid. Be sure to save the changes:
