How to create a New Project in Visual Studio Code (VS Code)

There is something that's a bit different when it comes to creating a New Project in Visual Studio Code (better called VS Code) compared to other IDEs. In order to create a New Project,

  1. Create a new folder or directory first on your Windows/Linux/Mac device,

  2. Now in VS Code click on File -> New Window...,

  3. Cick on open a folder and select your newly created folder,
    Click on Open a folder

  4. That is it! You should now be in the new project to get started...

Create a new folder using Terminal VS Code
