How to update to the lastest release :

The following shows you how to update to the latest release of Visual Studio Code.

Note: For Mac and Windows users, we have enabled the auto-update channel. If you’re prompted by VS Code, accept the newest update and it will get installed (you won’t need to do anything else to get the latest bits).

Auto-updates are not supported for Linux.

Updating on Linux

  • Download the VS Code zip file: 64-bit or 32-bit.
  • Open the zip and run Code

Updating on OS X

You need to do this only if auto-update did not complete.

  • Download the VS Code zip file from here.
  • Open the zip file and drag Code over to Applications.
  • Launch Code.

Updating on Windows

You need to do this only if auto-update did not complete.

Important: Close any running instances of VS Code before attempting to update (to avoid VS Code not being able to start after you update).

  • Run the installer from here.
  • If you have trouble with the Windows installer, download the VS Code zip file from here.
