Use "Code ." to open a folder in VS code

By: Daniel Jimenez | Published on: Jun 08 2021

When i switch from using my Windows machine to my Mac i alway type "code ." to open a folder... but it never works.

I will be setting up code to open with "Code ." from your terminal.

  1. On VS Code open the command palette by pressing:

"Command + Shift + P"

2. Type: "Shell Command".

3. Select: Shell Command: Install 'code' command in PATH"

Command Palette: "Command + Shift + P"

That is basically it! Now you should be able to open folders from your terminal by typing "code ." from your terminal!
