This is me jotting down notes on how to get up and running with the new Terminal before it gets officially released in the Windows store, using Visual Studio 2019.

Switching between Docker and VirtualBox on Windows 10

As outlined here, Docker for Windows requires Hyper-V. This needs to be disabled before you can run VirtualBox. # Run from elevated prompt (admin privileges) bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off And to start using Docker for Windows again, re-enable Hyper-V: # Run from elevated prompt (admin privileges) bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto A reboot is required in both cases. Note: if you only see 32-bit options when creating a VM in VirtualBox, it could be because you havent disabled Hyper-V....

My Visual Studio Code setup

I previously posted about my Sublime Text 3 (ST3) setup in 2016-05-20-my-sublime-3-setup, but I’ve fully moved on to use vscode instead so I figured I’d share this new setup.

Backslash in Atom

On Windows 10, Swedish keyboard. When I hit AltGr (right Alt button) and + (which is supposed to give me \), I get nothing in Atom.

However this is not acceptable behavior.
