Display User / Extension Suggestion First in Visual Studio Code

June 22, 2017

Just recently started using Visual Studio Code.

They’ve cool built-in features like Git & Debugger feature is awesome ?

But the thing which irritated me is their IntelliSense (Autosuggestions)

It showed suggestions from installed extension at the bottom

I’ve used cl zillion times. Now it’ll be really hard to use something else ?

Quick Fix

Just add this in user settings (settings.json)

{
  "editor.tabCompletion": true
}

That’s it. Now you’ll be getting suggestions like this

Before

visual studio code default suggestions

Now

visual studio code user suggestions
