Running Multiple VSCode Windows from the Same Workspace

In order to have two separate VSCode windows open that point to the same workspace, press CTRL+Shift+P and then search for Duplicate As Workspace in New Window. This will open a new window that is associated with the current workspace.

The thing to keep in mind is that it just DUPLICATED the existing workspace in a new window. Notice that at the top of the EXPLORER it will say UNTITLED (WORKSPACE). You can now work with two windows → Continue reading “Running Multiple VSCode Windows from the Same Workspace”
