Working on Dockers from shell or PowerShell is good but not great because you need to look for everything, like how many containers, etc you have. I am working on docker container from PowerShell and I want to see how many images I have.

But this is very time consuming and not a great way to work on large projects. Thats why we need to run Dockers inside Visual Studio Code or VS Code.

To run Docker inside VS' code you need to do the following steps.

1. Search Docker inside visual studio code extensions and install the Docker extension.

Now if you want to run your image then just select the image, right-click it, and hit run.


Now you are inside the terminal.
