Change user profile of Visual Studio Code

Jason Yeung 61 Reputation points


I'm currently managing a server which has Visual Studio Code installed by a previous user. He installed the user level version and as a result, the program is under his profile:
"C:\Users\previousName\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code".

He's no longer with us and I'll be taking over the server. I was wondering how do I move this program so it's under my name? For example, the program will go to "C:\Users\meJason\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code". I want to keep whatever settings he had setup previously.

His account will be removed soon, so I'm not sure if this would remove the program from the server.
