Block commenting lines of code, including entire line of selected text

I'm trying to block comment lines of code, starting with the entire line of code of where I begin my text selection. In PHPStorm, the block commenting starts precisely where I select the text — which makes sense.

In VS Code, block commenting will comment out the entire first line of code, regardless of where my text selection starts on the first line.

Is there a way to configure the behavior of block commenting this way?


I am afraid this behaviour cannot be controlled and I was not able to find any requests on YouTrack apart from this ancient declined ticket:

As a sort of workaround, you might want to use Line comment instead, it should work in the way you need but there will be series of line comments instead, like:

<!-- some text -->
<!-- some other text -->
<!-- more text -->

Bummer. Thanks for checking and letting me know!
