See how to use the integrated terminal in VS Code, how to use multiple terminals, and how to execute terminal commands.
- [Narrator] One of the really nice features…of Visual Studio Code is the integrated terminal.…Having a terminal built into the editor is…a great convenience because you don't have to change…to another application window in order to execute…terminal commands.…To view the terminal, you can either select…integrated terminal from the view menu…or you can type control backtick and that's the same…on both platforms.…Now on my English language keyboard the backtick…is located at the top left under the escape key…and it's on the same key as the tilde…but it might be different for you if you have…a different keyboard layout.…
So I'll go ahead and bring up the terminal.…The terminal runs with the same permissions…as the code app itself does and you can open…multiple terminals within the terminal panel.…You can see that in this drop down menu,…I've only got one terminal open.…If I click the plus icon here, that will open…a new one and then I can switch between the terminals.…To close the currently active terminal,…just click on the little trash can icon.…
