I believe that the Bracket Pair Colorization extension is now depreciated and is built into VSCode.

In the video https://teamtreehouse.com/library/visual-studio-code-extensions it suggests to install the extension Bracket Pair Colorizer https://code.visualstudio.com/blogs/2021/09/29/bracket-pair-colorization this is depreciated now as it is included in VSCode. Just wanted to push this your way.

Good catch Jordon and thanks for the info.
If you go to download it as you said it says its depericated and has this note

This project started on 3 Dec 2016. 
Now 5 years later, it has become a native feature in VSCode.

This extension has seen wilder success then I could over ever 
dreamed of, with over 10M+ downloads.

I'm glad so many people found it useful, 
however it no longer has a purpose entering 2022 
so development will no longer continue.
