How To Change Font Size in VSCode

Open the settings (File > Preferences > Settings) or use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + ,)tThen type “font size” in the search box.

You will see two options:

“editor.fontSize”: 18

“editor.lineHeight”: 24

You can adjust these settings to your liking.

If you want a bigger or smaller font size, simply change the numbers. The “lineHeight” option will adjust the spacing between lines.

There is no save button. Changes are applied to all tabs soon as new values are typed and you click away from the input box.

You can also increase or decrease the font size using the keyboard shortcuts:

Ctrl + Mouse Wheel Up/Down

or

Ctrl + Shift + P > Preferences: Change Font Size

Finally, you can click on the settings icon in the bottom right corner of the window, and then click on the “A” icon to change the font size.
