use the browsers developer tools.  e.g. for chrome it is Ctrl+Shift+i or F12

More information here:

I often right click on an element on the page and click "inspect".  This also brings up the devtools, specifically targeting that element.  That's important as you can see on the CSS/Styles panel exactly what CSS has been applied AND what has been overridden.

What is the user agent style in the inspect window ... the one that I can't  see in my coding....

You can find the user-agent on the network tab.  Just reload the page and look at any of the requests made by the browser. Is that what you are after?
