Before you move the whole development, just login the vscode with your github account and sync all your settings to the cloud.

  1. Copy all your project folder to new laptop
  2. Install vscode and login your github account and sync
  3. open your powershell and run following commmand
    ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C “[email protected]
  4. open folder C:\Users\yourUserName\.ssh and then open a file named id_rsa.pub with notepad or your favorite edit apps, then copy all content in this file to your clipboard.
  5. open your github -> settings -> SSH and GPG keys -> New SSH key
  6. copy all contents to the “key” field and put your new laptop name to the “title” field then save
  7. install git for windows and set up your git user information
    git config --global user.name "Your Name"
    git config --global user.email "[email protected]"
    if you forget your git user information on your old laptop use this
    git config --list
  8. restart your vscode and enjoy
