Visual Studio Code – Stop Suggestions in Plaintext

Sooooooooooooooooo annoying when you’re just trying to edit plaintext when there’s absolutely no need to suggest anything!

Here are the steps:

  1. Ctrl+Shift+P (or Command+Shift+P on Mac)
  2. Type: configure
  3. Select: Preferences: Configure Language Specific Settings…
  4. Choose: Plain Text (plaintext)
  5. Add to the [plaintext] section:
"[plaintext]": {
         "editor.wordBasedSuggestions": false,
         "editor.quickSuggestions": {
             "other": false,
             "comments": false,
             "strings": false
  1. Save and Close!
