Recently, started using Visual Studio Code as I'm yet figure out a way to install Sublime Text on Void Linux (using it as my current daily driver).

I'm always used to looking for my files using keyboard shortcuts in Sublime Text and I was kind of surprised this feature isn't enabled by default in Visual Studio Code.

Anyway, after a little digging, I found out that adding this line to your settings.json file would allow you to look for files in your workspace:


"search.useIgnoreFiles": false

And, now try Ctrl+P and you'll be able to search for your file(s) easily.

Hope you found this tip useful!
