At the 3:10 mark, what did you mean when you said: “it only requires the keyboard, you don’t have to take your hands off the mouse”.

The command palette can be summoned with just a keyboard shortcut. From there you can type commands that would normally require you to point and click specific menu items with your mouse, which takes longer than quickly summoning the command palette and typing the command. This saves you a lot of time in the long run when you consider how frequently you perform specific actions.

Awesome course so far. I’d had long wanted to try VS Code.

I think at 3:10 you meant to say, ““it only requires the keyboard, you don’t have to put your hands ON the mouse”.

Oh yes, you’re right.
