Install Visual Studio Code

Install ESP-IDF Visual Studio Code Extension from:

Visual Studio Code > Menu > View > Command Palette > type: configure esp-idf extension
Choose the ESP-IDF: Configure ESP-IDF extension option.

If you don’t have ESP-IDF installed, select “Express”
If you have already installed ESP-IDF, select “Use existing setup”

Once it has completed the setup it will prompt for the window to be closed.
