Side Bar Keep Opening on File Change


Hi, if I have the side bar closed when looking at a file and then go to another file tab, the side bar will open and then I have to close it again. So if I keyboard through 5 files, I will continue to see the side bar open for each of the files. Any fix for this?


By side bar do you mean the tree view?

Try unchecking Auto Reveal of the tree view package settings if you have it on.
Open the settings view, File menu -> settings then click the packages tab, search for tree-view, click settings and uncheck Auto reveal.


perfect. thank you


This is a bug with the tree-view and is getting tracked in So you can subscribe there if you want updates on when you can use Auto Reveal in combination with a hidden tree-view.
