Build, Upload, Clean icons dont work

Hi all
I’m pretty new to platformio, just started using it with my uno instead of the arduino IDE.
When i went to build my first program with pio, i got prompt asking if i wanted to disable tasks i think, and i believe that resulted in most of my lower taskbar icons not working. I cant build, upload, etc., instead the “Select task to run” pops up
I’ve tried uninstalling, reinstalling, but i cant seem to undo whatever i did.
In the meantime i found out i can still build and upload to my uno with terminal commands
I’m sure this is a simple fix, ive just exhausted all the means i can think of

  • VSCode version and the version of all installed plugins?
  • clicking the PIO alien icon in the left sidebar brings up nothing? No project tasks to see?
