How to check whether link is dofollow or nofollow

There are many ways to check whether the link is dofollow or nofollow links, however, I prefer method 2 to identify the type of link
Method1:
Let me explain this with an example. Suppose you commented on a blog and you want to check whether the link is dofollow or nofollow. You can follow the steps below to find out:
Step 1: Right-click on the webpage and click on ‘view page source’ as shown in the below screenshot
what is dofollow link, what is nofollow link, dofollow vs nofollow,

Step 2: Search for the link you left in the source code, press Ctrl+F and search for your website name or your comment as shown in the screenshot below
