Turning off suggestions in Visual Studio Code

By | March 27, 2020

Visual Studio Code, is a great program and it is my favorite editor, however it bugs me that it makes suggestions for every second work I type.
This is how you turn that off.

How to turn off word suggestion in Visual Studio Code:

1) Open Visual Studio Code

2) Open preferences:
MAC: Code, Preferences, Settings
PC: File, Preferences, Settings

3) Expand Text Editor, Select Suggestions

4) In about the middle of the page, click the “edit in settings.json” link

5) Add this line somewhere within the { }

"editor.wordBasedSuggestions": false

6) Take careful note of the commas, there should be one at the end of each line, except the last line.
