    have you added visual studio package? from package manager.

    try that "regenerate" button in preferences/external also.

    You will need to install Unity integration on Visual Studio's side too. Though this should happen automatically if Visual Studio is installed via Unity Hub.

    Here's a few more ways to wiggle the wires and bang the cage bars:

    This may help you with intellisense and possibly other Visual Studio integration problems:

    Sometimes the fix is as simple as doing Assets -> Open C# Project from Unity. Other times it requires more.

    Other times it requires you also nuke the userprefs and .vsconfig and other crufty low-value high-hassle files that Visual Studio tends to slowly damage over time, then try the above trick.

    Barring all that, move on to other ideas:

    Also, try update the VSCode package inside of Unity: Window -> Package Manager -> Search for Visual Studio Code Editor -> Press the Update button
