VS code/Live Server Browser issue


I am using the Live Server app, with VS Code. The issue I have is, as soon as I start coding, in the left column, the browser disappears, from the right.

Everything works fine, if I position/size VS Code/restore down Browser, side by side. Unfortunately that's with the browser working externally, from VS Code, not within its environment, the essence of the app.

The browser does automatically refresh but to see the refreshed/edited code, I have to access the browser from the taskbar, on laptop, unless I position the VS Code/browser together.

The whole concept of Visual Server, is to see edited code immediately, as I code.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Can you provide more details on what machine you are on? Windows version, mac version.
I have this running on windows 10, right now and it works

Live server will utilize an external browser and not one inside the VS Code interface. So you have to place the browser window side by side to VS Code to see the live updates.

That is how I have been using it.

It reloads the site when you hit save. Cntrl +S or Cmd +S, depending on your operating system.
