Empty Sidebar on Visual Studio Code on File -> Open

I have been using Visual Studio Code for sometime and its really amazing so far. But often I stumble upon an issue where if I import project through File->Open I end up with empty sidebar. If I do cmd+P to load files, files are available but its just not visible on sidebar.

Trying open projects with File->Open Recents or Ctrl+R also dint work out.

Here is the screenshot.

 

After reporting the issue to Visual Studio Code's github link, they have resolved the issue pretty fast.

Reason

Users who had file explorer hidden in 1.15 release might not see file explorer and also cannot retrieve it after upgrading to latest version. Workaround is to upgrade to insiders containing the fix or clear cache for that folder as follows:

Steps

  1. Close the window opening the folder that has this issue
  2. Open new empty Window
  3. Run command Developer: Toggle Developer Tools
  4. Go to Application Tab in Developer tools
  5. Select file:// under Local Storage section in the menu on the left
  6. Search for the key workbench.explorer.views.state using Filter inputbox
  7. Select the folder with this key and Delete it
  8. Now open the folder in VS Code and you should be seeing the file explorer.
