#StackBounty: #visual-studio-code Formatting of collections in watch window [visual studio code]

Bounty: 50

A long time ago I used Visual Studio and I remember that the watch window during debugging was much smarter in showing collections than in Visual Studio Code (which I am using now). For example, when I make a simple Listof Strings and I inspect this in the watch window in VSCode I get the following

Whereas in Visual Studio the quick watch feature was much more useful:

In general, I am mostly interested in the values in the collection, which I have to dig down fourlevels of hierarchy in vscode and is quite obfuscated. Does anyone know of an extension or a way to get a more usable watch window for collections?
