VS Code will not launch Chrome to Authenticate new Project

If you cancelled out or for whatever reason cannot get VS Code to launch a new browser window to authenticate your org do the following from command line:

lsof -i tcp:1717

kill -9 <the process ID>

Instructions are here: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.sfdx_dev.meta/sfdx_dev/sfdx_dev_troubleshoot_cancel_auth.htm

Sounds easy to remember...but then a couple months pass and here I sit wondering why I cannot find this page on the googles.
