Default.xml (Virtual vs Physical?)

Default.xml (Virtual vs Physical?)


I have created a theme by using Luma (which extends from Magento/blank).  This has been added in the backend and site is working fine.  Any changes done to CSS (Less) are being reflected in the store front .

However, changes that I’m making in default.xml are not being shown.  It’s as if the Magento is completely ignoring the file.  The path I’m creating default.xml is in C:\xampp\htdocs\magento2\app\design\frontend\vendorMy\themeMy\Magento_Theme\layout


Can anyone please help?  In certain forums there are topics saying that I may need to change the theme from virtual to physical but cannot find the table.  Is this correct?


Many thanks
