I was looking for how to quickly collapse (fold) all code methods in VS Code the other day (⌘ + k, ⌘ + 0) when I came across something even more useful: all of the keyboard shortcuts set within VS Code (⌘ + k, ⌘ + s).

The beauty of this is that you can now search for any keyboard shortcuts or create your own bindings.

For example, I wind up looking at my settings a lot (⌘ + ,), but more often than not, I want the JSON version to see what I’ve set. So, I created a new keybinding: ⌘ + k, ⌘ + ,.

These manually set keybindings can be seen through the command palette’s option: Preferences: Open Keyboard Shortcuts (JSON).

// Place your key bindings in this file to override the defaultsauto[]
    "key": "cmd+k cmd+,",
    "command": "workbench.action.openSettingsJson"

And just like that, I’m able to fully customize the keyboard shortcuts within VS Code!
