Unable to install library to global storage via GUI


I don’t seem to have an option to install a library to global storage from the GUI. The only option I get is ‘Add to project’.
CLI “pio lib -g install xxxx” will install the library to global storage correctly.

Am I missing something? This was never an issue before.

I’m using VSCode 1.49.2 on Win7, PIO extension 2.1.0, PIO core 5.0.1. (As far as I know all the latest versions.)


I believe that option was removed in release 2.0.0. Someone else mentioned it at PlatformIO IDE 2.0 for VSCode 🚀.


Thank you! Looks like I haven’t tried to install a library since the 2.0.0 upgrade.
