How to add another external editor

I’m using github desktop, recently I just got new vesion of visual studio and I would like to add it in to external editor, but it doesn’t show up. Is there anything I missed or what should I do? Please help!

just a guess,

how about installing the Visual Studio first before GitHub Desktop ?

Hi @HMT2002 welcome to the community.

Unfortunately it is not listed as as a supported editor.

There are more details around GitHub Desktop editor integration at this link:

If you’re using VS2022 it has built-in GitHub integration I believe. While it’s not GitHub Desktop it should give you basically the same functionality from inside Visual Studio.

If you’re using an older version then there’s an extension available that can add GitHub integration.
