We all know that Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is the BEST overall text editor out there, but even with that- most people still are not aware of all of its amazing features. We’re going to dive into what I believe is one of the most powerful ones, the built-in version control tools for VS Code. We’ll look at how you can utilize them to save time on running those repetitive git terminal commands. Let’s jump into it!

The version control tools in VS Code are extremely powerful and there is no way we could cover them all in one blog post, so today we’re going to talk about some of the most basic ones that will help you be more productive from day one! Also, for the purposes of this blog the git platform we will be working with is GitHub, because 1) I do what I want and 2) GitHub is the most widely-used at this time. But know that VS Code has the ability to work with nearly every git-based platform.

Cloning a Repo from GitHub

Cloning a repo from GitHub is something that Software Engineers will do very frequently.

Controlling Your Visual Studio Default Window Layout

You're probably perfectly happy with the layout of windows that Visual Studio is giving you (it's whatever window layout you last used). But if you think there's a more optimal layout, it's easy to change. And if there's a couple of layouts you like ... well, you can have them, also.
