How to Get Consistent Line Breaks in VS Code "LF vs CRLF"

Ever had the problem where you submit a pull request and the diff is waaaaay bigger than it should be? The code looks identical but GitHub is telling you that it’s all different! This is typically due to a difference in line endings. Unix systems (Linux and Mac) default to the LF (line feed) character for line breaks. Windows on the other hand is “special” and defaults to CR/LF (carriage return AND line feed).
The Quick Fix
If you are here to quickly fix a single file that you are having problems with, you are in luck. At the bottom right of the screen in VS Code there is a little button that says “LF” or “CRLF”:
