How to Easily Change VSCode Color Theme

In this video I will show you how to easily change VSCode color theme with an extension called Peacock. This extension changes the color of the title bar, status bar and activity bar.

Once installed the extension can be accessed from the command palette. Simply open the command palette and search for peacock. You can select from a list of predefined favorite colors. You can darken or lighten a selected color. You can even save a favorite color.

This extension is great for identifying different VSCode windows at a glance. If you work with other developers and do not want to commit your color settings you can easily remove and reapply your changes when switching between branches.
