( 39 Articles)
This concise article shows you 2 different ways to increase or decrease the font size in VS Code (Visual Studio Code).
Method 1: Using hotkeys
For macOS users:
- Press “Cmd” + “+” to increase the font size
- Press “Cmd” + “-” to decrease the font size
For Windows users:
- Press “Ctrl” + “+” to increase the font size
- Press “Ctrl” + “-” to decrease the font size
Note: This approach change both the code and the UI font size. If you only want to change the code font size and keep the UI font size, check the second method.
1. Launch your VS Code and go to:
- Code > Preferences > Settings if you’re using macOS
- File > Preferences > Settings if you’re using Windows
2. Select Text Editor > Font from the left-hand menu and head to the Font Size section (see the screenshot below for more clarity):
Enter your font size number into the box. Your change will automatically be saved and applied.
Note: This method doesn’t affect the UI text size.
