How To Install Visual Studio Code On Windows 11

Introduction

In this article, I will explain how we can install and configure Visual Studio Code on Windows 11.

Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a source code editor that supports Java, JavaScript, Go, Node.js, Python, and C++, among other programming languages. It's built on the Electron framework, which is used to create Node.js Web apps that leverage the Blink layout engine. The same editor component (codenamed "Monaco") that is used in Azure DevOps is utilized in Visual Studio Code (formerly called Visual Studio Online and Visual Studio Team Services).

Rather than having a project system, it allows users to open one or more folders, which may subsequently be stored as workspaces for later use. As a result, it may be used as a language-independent code editor for any language. It supports a variety of programming languages, each with its own set of capabilities. The parameters can be used to exclude unwanted files and directories from the project tree.
