Set Cool Icons for Files and Folders in Visual Studio Code

Last updated on 18 Jul, 2022

While watching different tutorial videos, one thing which I always noticed is the cool icons in the instructor's IDE. I am using Visual Studio Code IDE. In VS code, we can bring cool icons with the help of an extension called vscode-icons.


First open VS code.

Then click on Extensions tab.

Then search for vscode-icons by VSCode Icons Team.

VS Code Icons

Install the extension.

After installation, the icons appear next to each files and folders. The extension itself has more than 11 million downloads so far at the time of writing. Enjoy!.
