Thanks for leaving feedback and additional explanations. Regarding your question at the end, I do believe the screen was a VIM editor. It sometimes comes up when I am working with git.

If you're using Vim to edit git commit messages and don't want to, I think there's a git config setting. Failing that, I imagine setting something like;

export EDITOR=$(command -v code)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

in your shell config would let you use VS Code instead (or whatever you want)
