Step 3: On clicking, you will see the settings page. You have to copy “terminal.integrated.shell.windows”: “C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe” at the last of all settings as shown in the image below:
Step 4: And that’s all when you will reopen VS Code then you will see that Git Bash has been integrated. Now you can run Git Bash commands directly in VS Code.
