Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022: How do I disable Python code completion when "Tools > Options > Python > Language server" option is missing?

I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 Version 17.5.5. I would like to disable Python code completion because I find it too intrusive. The question is similar to, however the answer provided there does not work in my case because "Tools > Options > Python > Language server" is not present in my version of Visual Studio and it is not obvious to me why it does not, nor how to add it. As my comment on that question has gone unanswered I have decided to ask this directly.

    I apologize for the confusion. The option to disable Python code completion is not available in Visual Studio 2022 version 17.5.5. The option to disable code completion will be available in a future version of Visual Studio 2022.

    In the meantime, you can disable Python code completion by setting the following environment variable:

    This will disable all linting features in Visual Studio, including code completion.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
