Clear the terminal in VS Code
The Valley of Code
Your Web Development Manual
I usually clear the terminal with
cmd-k but in VS Code this key combination didn’t work.
I had to use
cmd-shift-P and search the
Terminal: Clear command.
Turns out I had the
cmd-k key combination already set up, but it wasn’t working.
In the keyboard shortcuts screen, the
When column was set to
terminalFocus && terminalProcessSupported. I set it to just
terminalFocus and it worked.
You can also remove
terminalFocus to make
cmd-k clear the console even if the terminal is not focused, which is nice sometimes.
