I want to change text upon the webpages and save back to its original aspx page so that when page gets loaded again then new changes could be seen.

You can't really do that using web browser! This is a wrong approach since what you saw in the web browser was what was being rendered from server side.

If you want to edit the web front (.aspx) file, you need to edit the source file at (web) server side instead, using tools such as notepad will do.

You can.

But you will have to do it in .asp or .aspx file on web-server. You cannot do it in a browser where you are actually editing a rendered file which is completely different than the original file.

Hope it clarifies! I hope I understand what you are trying to do.

Ok, got that. Technically it's doing the changes from backend. the question title mentioned: How to Edit aspx page using browser and saves back

perhaps our interpretation of the question is different.

it depends on what @BYTECHINDIA intend to do but apparently no response from the asker.

It does exactly that, you edit it in the browser. I do not see different interpretations in this case
