Thanks ! Any suggestions for the theme ? Also, where can we disable the shady sidebar ? As the OP, we're newbies with VSCode, so don't know all the things by heart. In Sublime, ALL settings were stored in a single JSON, so people would just share the relevant key, e.g. disable_shady_sidebar: true.
The default short cut to hide the side bar is cmd+b . You can a user shortcut for the activity bar as well. I choose option+cmd+b. That way if i need them, they are there. otherwise out of sight.
