Sometimes you want a tutorial that is straight and to the point. You want the how, not the who, what, where, when, why.

Today's quick lesson: setting the default terminal in VS Code.


  1. Open VS Code
  2. Press CTRL+Shift+P / β‡§βŒ˜P and search for terminal select default shell
  3. Make your selection and press enter (In my case I chose Git Bash)

All of your new terminals will now default to your choice πŸŽ‰

I hoped this helped you. If there are other quick tips you'd like, or more in depth topics you'd like me to cover, leave a comment or reach out to me,

Thanks for reading! πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»
