IDEs will give you the world as long as you stay inside of it. VS Code makes file management a breeze in your workspace but bringing in anything from the outside world will not be frictionless. Inserting a screenshot into a markdown document within VS Code is a multi-step process:

  1. Take the screenshot
  2. Save the screenshot in a folder
  3. Locate the screenshot in file explorer
  4. Drag-drop the screenshot into VS Code
  5. Reference the screenshot from the markdown document

Nowhere near as seamless as Microsoft Word handles pasting images. What if there was an extension that could handle pastes directly?
