Somehow My visual studio code froze when It was idle for some time and I was using my Injellij application.
- When I found, I tried quitting the application by doing right +click on visual studio code icon and quit- nothing happened.
- Then I tried force quit -still nothing happened.
- opened activity monitor-saw electron(not responding)- tried quit and force quit- still nothing.
- then tried everything from this post How to "killall" Visual Studio Code in Terminal? - still nothing.
Also in taskbar, the vscode icon is not present but if I try to relaunch, I get an error message saying
"Another instance of Code is running but not responding
Please close all other instances and try again."
I am not sure what actually happened but if someone can help me to trace this and fix without restarting my system . I would also be happy if someone can help me find error logs for vscode or macos to investigate what actually happened. below are app and system information.
