There are a few ways to open VSCode to create a project that starts in a specific folder.

1) From the command-line, use “code .” to open ‘here’.

2) In Windows Explorer:

  • From the Folder context menu (right click) there should be a “Open With Code” option. The same context menu can be seen by right clicking on the folder in the left-hand tree, or in the file area in the right side, under all files (empty area) in the folder.
  • OR: In the Windows Explorer path/address bar, you can also type “cmd” to open a command window. From there, see (1).

3) Or, just open VSCode, navigate to the folder and use “File > Open Folder”.
