Answer

  • Click on the request line in the Session List
  • The data of the selected request/response can be analyzed using tab Inspectors
  • Fiddler contains 10 different request inspector views, but the most used one is Raw - this request inspector view will show you the plain text representation of the request content.
  • Depending on your needs you can also use other request inspectors as well.
