Resolve - zsh: command not found: code

zsh command not found code

If you have installed Microsoft Visual Studio Code on your Mac device and when you try to open it from zsh shell in your terminal and you get error: zsh: command not found: code the reason is that you have not set the PATH for VS Code in your zsh profile.


  1. Open Zshrc profile file using - nano ~/.zshrc
  2. Now add the below line at the file,
    export PATH="\$PATH:/Applications/Visual Studio"
  3. Now exit Nano, by pressing command + X and save changes.
  4. Apply the changes by tying source ~/.zshrc
  5. Now you should be able to open vs code using Zsh Shell in Mac Terminal.

❗️ Make sure that the Visual Studio is available on Applications directory or use the path where it resides.
