VS Code automatically opens VS Community

Hey there,
I’m on the 14th lesson of the Unreal Engine C++ Developer: Learn C++ and Make Video Games course and i have a problem. Every time i try to run the code in the terminal VS Code automatically opens the file in VS Community and I don’t know how to change that. Can somebody help me?

You’re probably typing “triplex.cpp” on its own which is the same as double clicking it in File Explorer

Did you open VS Code through the developer command prompt?

Yes I did

Could you show me a screenshot of your developer command prompt after typing “cl”?
