  • Open files always in a new tab
    When you [single] click a file in the sidebar, Visual Studio Code opens it in what’s called “Preview Mode“, which allows you to quickly view files. Preview Mode tabs are not kept open. As soon as you go to open another file from the sidebar, the existing Preview Mode tab (if one exists) is used. You can determine if a tab is in Preview Mode, by looking at its title in the tab bar. If the title is italic, the tab is in preview mode. To open a file for editing (i.e. don’t open in Preview Mode), double-click on the file in the sidebar.If you want to disable Preview Mode all together, you can do so by setting "workbench.editor.enablePreview": false in your settings file.
