SelfNote: Setup Spacy Module in Visual Studio

I guess not so many people use Visual Studio doing NLP with Python. I have been searching for a solution on how to add a Spacy module in Visual Studio. I kept getting cannot find en_core_web_sm module error and the only solution I could find is to run python -m spacy download en_core_web_sm. I was struggling to find where in the UI to run the Python command. And finally, the solution came.

you noticed the "Admin" icon? yes, that is the key to solve the problem. With admin permission, you can open PowerShell and run python -m spacy download en_core_web_sm.

I installed en_core_web_sm, but it shows a warning message. And the en_core_web_lg module can eliminate the warning.
