If you are like me, who likes to spend a considerable amount of time making your work a bit more exciting with a workspace environment. This article helps you to customize your vscode background in 2 steps.


  1. install this vscode plugin.
  2. in vscode run CMD/CTRL + SHIFT + P and choose The Open Settings (JSON) command and copy the following
  "background.enabled": true,
  "background.loop": false,
  "background.useDefault": false,
  "background.useFront": false,
  "": {
        "content": "''",
        "pointer-events": "none",
        "position": "absolute",
        "z-index": "99999",
        "width": "70%",
        "height": "100%",
        "background-position": "right",
        "background-size": "cover",
        "background-repeat": "no-repeat",
        "opacity": 0.1
  "background.customImages": [
        "",  ",750x1000,075,t,FFFFFF:97ab1c12de.jpg",
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

On the restart, you should see your cool new editor with a background image.

Note: To remove the warning from vscode, click on the little setting button and then select don't show again.
