How to make VSCode stable the default

It’s possible to switch a running instance of Codespaces to the Stable version, by clicking the gear icon and hitting “Switch to Stable version”.

How can I switch to the stable version by default?

Hi @felipecrs, it is not currently possible at the moment but is planned for the nearest future (you will be able to use the gear icon or invoke a command to change the default vscode channel).

Meanwhile, you can append the ?vscodeChannel=stable to the codespace URL as a semi-persistent option for the switch.


Thank you so much for the URL tip.
