VS Code: Automatically Organize TypeScript Imports

You can configure VS Code automatically organize TypeScript imports by following these simple steps.

First, open the settings using ⇧⌘P or Ctrl+Shift+P, search for Preferences: Configure Language Specific Settings... Press Enter on your keyboard then search for TypeScript. This will open the settings.json file where you need to simply add the following settings:

"[typescript]": {
    "editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
        "source.organizeImports": true
    }
},
"[typescriptreact]": {
    "editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
        "source.organizeImports": true
    }
}

This instructs VS Code to automatically organize TypeScript imports when saving the .ts and .tsx files.
