I’ve searched the documentation (and the forum), but I haven’t found an answer to an issue I’ve been having since a few weeks. Probably because I really don’t know where I should start looking: vscode, platformio extension, platformio documentation on esp32, platformio documentation on arduino platform, …
I have an esp32 project (using the arduino framework) and every time I connect my esp32 board (any esp32 board, at least I’ve tried various, with various USB drivers) vscode opens two windows: one with a readme on the Arduino framework, and another one with a browser of Arduino examples.
Very helpful for beginners, but how can I disable this behaviour?
Well, answering my own question (at least sort of): the issue seems to be the Arduino extension. I’ve disabled it and the problem is gone: I can connect USB devices to my hearts desire and no windows are opened.
So I guess I’m going to move to a setup where all my vscode extensions are disabled and per workspace I only enable the extensions I need in that workspace (so that would be only C++ and PlatformIO for this workspace).
