VSCode remote containers - M1 ver Win11


My Win11 computer's VSCode for remote containers shows the green "Open in Remote Window" in the UI but my Mac M1 doesn't. Both are running docker and both took the latest updates. Is there a reason Mac M1 UI is different now or is this a bug?

The following image is from the M1 showing: docker desktop running, project running in dev container - see the container's terminal, and the version of vscode.

you need to install the remote extension pack

You can get it from the extensions tab in vscode: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=ms-vscode-remote.vscode-remote-extensionpack

Then make sure it is enabled (from the extensions tab). If it is installed and not shown, right click anywhere on the bottom bar and make sure remote hosts is checked.
