I recently started working in Magento 2, after reading docs and tutorial I set up my first magento site and is running successfully on my localhost. I am now setting a new Magento 2 project, I used the same way I setup the previous project, but now, my custom.css file not loading and I can't even find that in the page source if it's loaded. I've checked many times the path etc., and everything seems OK.
I've added the custom.css file in the following path:
I have noticed that running the command
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
not generating the custom.css file in the static folder. Please help me sort out where I am doing mistake.
