It is easy to configure visual studio code as per your likings using various settings. You can change VS code editor ,user interface and functioning by using this settings

There are three ways you can open user and workspace settings

  1. To access you can go to  Click on File–>Preferences–>Settings

2) Using Command Palette(Ctrl+Shift+P)  by typing

Preferences: Open User Settings  or Preferences : Open Workspace Settings

3) Use keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+,)

This provides two different settings

  • User Settings – Settings that apply globally to any instance of VS Code you open.
  • Workspace Settings – Settings stored inside your workspace and only apply when the workspace is opened.

Workspace settings override user settings.

Once you open settings then you can modify settings as below

Example. If I want to change font size in editor then I can do it from here

 

Change the font size and see the effect on editor.
