Discussion on: Apps to install when you got the new Mac

I know this post is more about setting-up a Mac, but I just want to share that for VS Code, I recommend using the Settings Sync extension for setting-up VS Code on a brand new machine.

On an old/previous machine, just upload your settings (will include installed extensions). Then in the new machine, first install Settings Sync, then download all your settings (will also install extensions). This way, you don't have to remember which extensions to install and which settings to configure.

I think VS Code is making this a built-in feature but I haven't tried it yet.

Nice, that's a great feature. I used it as well. I listed them all to help newbies as well, but definitely try to put it in the post
