How can I see local history changes in Visual Studio Code?

I'm looking for a way to see my local history changes.

  • Visual Studio Code now offers this in the Timeline view. See Mark's answer.

    Or alternatively, if you want a plugin to give you similar functionality, for example:


    Or the more famous:

    Local History

    Some details may need to be configured because the Visual Studio Code search gets confused sometimes because of additional folders created by this type of plugins. To fix this, you can:

    1. Add the history folder to your .gitignore file.
    2. Change the history folder location in the chosen plugin configuration.
    3. Configure the Visual Studio Code search to ignore the history folder.
