Join Reynald Adolphe for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up preferences, part of Learning Visual Studio Code.
- [Instructor] Code provides us with quite a bit…of flexibility to control the way that it behaves.…That is, the preferences and settings that it has.…So for example, right now I have the DOTNET project open…and what I'd like to do is demonstrate…where those settings are.…If you hit the Command key, and hit the comma,…settings.json will pop up.…On the PC there's no equivalent shortcut,…so just go to File, Preferences, Settings.…
Now I'd like you also to click on the Program file…on the left hand side there,…just to show you something that I'm going to modify.…So, let's hop back to settings.json.…When I was putting this course together,…one of the things that we want to make sure…that is very easy for the user to see is the text.…So we want to make sure that the font is at a decent size,…and for code, what I had to do is come into the settings…to increase the font size…and that's over here, editor.fontSize.…
So any type of setting that you want…you can scroll down to find exactly what you need,…or you can move to the very top and search.…
In this course, learn the basics of Visual Studio Code. Industry expert Reynald Adolphe helps you get started with Visual Studio Code by showing how to use the command line and manage its layout, as well as how to handle multiple instances of the command line. He also demonstrates code refactoring, explains how to prepare for environments like ASP.NET, and shows how to create your first .NET app and Node app. Plus, Reynald covers keyboard shortcuts, and language features.
