SFDX: force misssing

Hello Helpers

I am trying to use VS Code with one of  my org (NOT a scratch org!) and  I have problem using some of the CLI  commands.  It seems that all force  namespace is missign because when I  type in te command bar the SFDX: force  I got "No commands matching"

What I am interested in the first step to us is to add to my VS project an existing Apex class form my org. 
I do not want to  add it  manually  to package.xml
and retreieve it
I want to use the following CLI command
sfdx force:source:retrieve --metadata ApexClass:YourApexClass.

error with SFDX: force   namespace

I  found the solution

The command  should be used from a Visual Source Code  TERMINAL
