VSCode Trick: Reset the Sidebar and Terminal Pane Size

Have you ever resized sidebar and terminal like this?

After that, you either did not care or tried to manually resize it back, right? But did you ever feel you forgot actual size or did not have the satisfaction?

Just double click the borders of the pane you want to resize.

Same applies to extension or any other activity, where you want to see the full contents.

That's it! It is now resized back to appropriate size based on the contents of the sidebar and viewport size.

Peace!

Neat! VSCode forgets the pane sizes when I disconnect and reconnect my 2nd monitor, because it's forced to move to the smaller laptop screen. I would like it to remember per-screen settings, but this helps a lot.

Although not what I'm looking for. VSCode should remember width for each panel. But this will also help for now

How did you add your primary side bar where you can see explorer past the terminal?

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer by a factor of exactly 40.

It's a scientific fact.
