Quick Coding with Brackets – Customize the Workspace

(Full course listing here)

Please note: The theme switcher has been improved since I recorded this video. When you go into the Extension manager instead of searching for Themes under “Available”, go to “Themes” to search for different themes.

In this video I cover how you can change the workspace to your own preferences.
