We’ll skip the “Run and debug” menu in here, as it’s not much useful right now for us.
The fifth icon in the activity bar brings us to extensions.
Extensions are a great feature of VS Code.
They can provide so much value that you’ll surely end up using tons of them.
I have lots of extensions installed.
You can disable an extension you install, and enable only when you need it.
You can also disable an extension for a specific workspace. Workspaces are basically ongoing project windows.
You might have a workspace for a web project and a workspace for a python project. Those will need different extensions.
There is a list of recommended extensions when you first open this tab, which include all the most popular tools.
Let’s install one extension I recommend you add, which is Duplicate action.
For some reason VS Code doesn’t have a quick way to “Duplicate” a file. This extension will add a menu item that shows up when you right-click a file.
Search “Duplicate action” and you’ll see the extension. Click Install to enable it!
