Running python in terminal on vs code shortcut

is there a way to run python in the terminal without always using the mouse to click the “play” styled run button in the top right corner?

If you’ve got the Jupyter extension installed (the Python extension comes with it I believe) you can define cells between pairs of #%% comment code. When your cursor is inside a cell you can use ctrl+enter to run the cell or shift+enter to run the cell and move the cursor to the following cell.

Hmm…it is installed, but ctrl + enter or shift + enter don’t do anything. It affects the terminal, but gives me a blank output each time i use the commands.

Install an extension called code runner

Then open the file with the python code and use the following command:
Ctrl + Alt + N

Or you can use F1 and click run…

You can use Ctrl + Alt + M to stop running.

You can also use the terminal(shortcut for starting terminal Ctrl +` ) :

Make sure to cd to the directory which has your file,then , on the terminal type:. python and hit Enter

You can always use ctrl + f5 to run your Python code without debugging in your VS Code terminal.

This doesn’t need an extension and comes by default with the VS Code application
