Navigate to the directory you installed VS Code and click the icon to open it up. The IDE should look as follows.

The Version of VS code I'm using at the time of the writing is Version 1.28.2 (2018). I won'tgo too deep into how to use the IDE but here are the basics. You have 5 basic sections in the center of the IDE called Start, Recent, Help, Customize, Learn. This is all within the "Welcome" screen. And if you accidentally close it don't worry you can always get to it by clicking on "File and New Window."

A lot of this is information strait forward. You can start a new file and or open a folder or workspace, and In time more things will show up in the "Recent" section. The important thing to note are the 5 icons on the left side of the screen. The first appears to look like a folder called the "explorer". The next icon is the "search", the third is a "source control", then "Debug" and finally "Extensions". I highly recommend you install the following Extensions,  C#, "Fix format", Code Runner, "Scriptcs Runner", and most important "Code".  These extensions are intuitively easy to install.

Tools for Command-line "dotnet”:

The Command-line interface (CLI) for 'code' are located at:

Launching 'code' from the command line makes everything incredibly easy. You can go to any one of your projects and type 'code .' Don't forget the '.' Dot notation. This will pull up the IDE for your project.

Also at the bottom of the screen you have error and warning icons which give you the total count. If you click, it will pull up another small window with 4 tabs labeled "Problems", "Output", "Debug Console" and "Terminal". The first thing that some experienced programmers might think is to create a C# program and open a New file immediately. Let's NOT do that yet.
