In walking through Get started using Visual Studio Code with Windows Subsystem for Linux I had already installed VS Code and did not,

When prompted to Select Additional Tasks during installation, be sure to check the Add to PATH option so you can easily open a folder in WSL using the code command.

what are the steps needed to accomplish this now after the fact?

    Hi , you can add the vs code directory to path by using the windows environment variables.

    Search for Edit environment variables and open the path variable. Add vs code directory to the path folder.For example, on Windows, VS Code is installed under AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\bin.
