    I use VSCode on my Ubuntu computer at work. I can't seem to forward the VSCode window to my home Mac computer using XQuartz via ssh and the windows forwarding option.

    Using XQuartz 2.7.11 (xorg-server 1.18.4)
    via the command line I do:
    $ ssh my_work_computer -Y

    After I login I do try to open VSCode:
    $ code

    However, this opens a VSCode window on the remote computer not on my home Mac.

    I have confirmed that the windows forwarding works with other applications, i.e. Google Chrome and Emacs.

    Any work arounds or explanations would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello and welcome.

    Unfortunately, I have no programming experience with VSCode/XQuartz/etc.

    Honestly, the best thing to do would be to post the question directly in the Visual Studio Code Community.

    Let us know if they resolve the issue,
