Custom icons

There is an extension in VS Code that displays custom icons for different types of files. For example, for a JavaScript file with the ".js" extension it displays the JavaScript logo while for a TypeScript file with the ".ts" extension it displays the TypeScript logo. This can be useful because it helps your brain to visually identify each of the files in the project explorer.

You can install the extension by clicking on the Extensions icon. You can then search for vscode-icons and install it.

After installing it you will need to restart VS Code and click on File → Preferences → File Icon Theme. Then select VSCode Icons.
