Enable tab completion for Markdown Snippets in VS Code

While working on a frontmatter markdown snippet in VS Code I couldn't understand why tab completion wasn't working. It turns out that some extensions (including Markdown) don't have snippet tab completion enabled by default (you can however type ctrl+Space to show available snippets with what you've typed).

Enable snippet tab completion for all extensions

To enable tab completion in VS Code, open your User Settings (⌘+, in MacOS, ctrl+, in Windows) and add the following JSON:

"editor.tabCompletion": true,

Save your User Setttings configuration and your on your way to more efficient snippet usage for Markdown (and other languages)!
