Installing Existing VS Code Extensions on a New Computer
Last Updated: Feb 25, 2020
I recently purchased a new computer and realized there isn’t an easy way in the VS Code GUI to get a list of all of your installed extensions. I was able to find a way to do it using the command line.
The code command can be used to list all of your installed extensions quickly.
With a little xargs work you can get a series of commands you can then copy and paste into the console on your new computer.
Then on your new computer you can run them one at a time or all at once.
I’m questioning all the extensions I have installed now but at least now my new computer is like my old computer. :-)
