Before explaining more about Workspaces or Projects in VSCode, it is important you have first set op a working environment for your files, as I describe in:
Writing Webpages / Setting up a Test Environment.
As a result you might have the following directories:
7.1. VSCode, What is a VSCode Workspace?From VSCode docs:
7.2. VSCode, Creating a new VSCode Workspace.When you look at the directory screenshot above, you can see it has a course-files directory. We will create a workspace for that directory. We do that by opening a folder entry from the file menu.
So first we choose for Editor
I assume you have no workspace created yet, you will see this:
In this case you click on the blue Open folder button.
After that you go to the root-directory of the test environment you have set up.
Make sure you select the course-material directory in the maps field and click on select map. You might get the next message:

7.3. VSCode, Saving / Opening a VSCode Workspace.After creating a VSCode Workspace, you can save that as a special workspace-file with the menu action File - Save Workspace as...
How to find a certain setting in Visual Studio Code?

While typing theme you will notice that as soon as you start typing, VSCode tries to complete the text and give you its results. So it might not be necessary to type the complete text you are looking for.
As you see I use the default light theme for VSCode.
