Fullscreen Terminals in VSCode


I often find myself using a "real" terminal alongside my VSCode setup, because for some tasks the built-in terminal, due to its small size, is quite flimsy to use. But! I just found out there's a a way to switch the terminal into fullscreen mode, using the "View: Toggle Maximized Panel" command.

You can bind it to a shortcut, which makes switching between editor and terminal a breeze! Simply add this to your keybindings.json (also accessible via the command palette):

        "key": "cmd+alt+m",
        "command": "workbench.action.toggleMaximizedPanel"
