MacOS now supports both "Light" and "Dark" mode (found in "System Preferences", "General", "Appearance").
How can I make VS Code automatically change its theme to be light or dark, when I change my MacOS "Appearance"?

Auto switch based on OS color scheme Windows and macOS support light and dark color schemes. There is a setting,
window.autoDetectColorScheme, that instructs VS Code to listen to changes to the OS's color scheme and switch to a matching theme accordingly.
To customize the themes that are used when a color scheme changes, you can set the preferred light, dark, and high contrast themes with the settings:
workbench.preferredLightColorTheme- defaults to "Default Light+"
workbench.preferredDarkColorTheme- defaults to "Default Dark+"
workbench.preferredHighContrastColorTheme- defaults to "Default High Contrast"
workbench.preferredHighContrastLightColorTheme- defaults to "Default High Contrast Light"
