Visual Studio Code does not log output


can anyone please be so kind to explain me just what on earth is going on here? Nothing is being logged…

I find it very difficult to use this tool…
By the way, it’s on Windows 10

What do you see if you click on terminal?

The output window is for output of the running process itself, not the code the process is running (so it shows a Node process starting, then exiting normally as expected).

Btw, as VSCode is a text editor and almost all special functionality comes via plugins, and we don’t know what you’re using – are you just running the file via the terminal, or are you running it via some plugin, or something else?

So what happens if you type node main.js into there and press enter?

like this?
