There are few ways to access it depending on where you are in the product. We'll list them all below:

If you're on the URL where your flow(s) should be showing, and you've already downloaded the Chrome extension, you can right-click the Appcues Chrome Extension icon and choose "Debug flows on this page..."
From the editor
If you have the Chrome Editor open, you can access the debugger from the Help (?) menu to the left of the 'Preview option'. Just select 'Launch the flow debugger'. Your editor will close and the debugger will appear on your page.
