I always find it quicker and easier to manually supply the location of the venv in the settings file(s) as Using the Select Python Interpreter command doesn't do a good job at finding them.

I use pipenv so all my environments are in my C:\Users\Alex\.virtualenvs\ directory so there could be a more elaborate solution where the vscode command would monitor this directory for any python executables?

I just found setting python.venvPath to your virual env. will allow Interpretor to list them in Code.

For example :

"python.venvPath": "~/python-virtual-environments/"
