How to change Visual Studio Code syntax color for JavaScript?

Let say I am not happy with the color of comments in Visual Studio Code. Is where a way to change the color of this element? Thanks

Hi there.

Extensions like syntax and Material Color change the color of your code. However I personally prefer to change the color theme.

You can find the option on the Welcome tab when you open VS Code under color theme, which opens up the extensions tab with options to download from.

I would recommend trying Noctis and SynthWave '84 but there are plenty to choose from. Alternatively just search for 'syntax highlighting' and you'll find a lot of options.

Good luck!
