Platformio cant recognice project

i have the issue when i create a new project for esp32 controller and add not the project but the folder where i saved the project to the workspace on the left, platformio cannot recognicing it and have not the option to run the code via the blue status bar on the bottem.
when i add only the project to the workspace, i have no problem and the symbols are visible for running the code.

how can i fix that issue ?
thanks for the support!

You have to open a folder that contains the platformio.ini file (not a nested one).

many thanks for your reply! is there no option to add the folder which contains only projects to the workspace ?
it would be look much cleaner for me instead adding all projects one by one to the workspace :slight_smile:
