Clicking that button will open a GitHub issue so an icon can be added for that particular file type.

Language support

For additional language support in Visual Studio, give Syntax Highlighting Pack a try. It adds over 40 new languages to Visual Studio.


Some icons comes from the brilliant vscode-icons extension for Visual Studio Code.
