Hi Basil,
You have to create project with menifest file when you done it you will get a 'package.xml' file inside the menifest in nevigation open this 'package.xml' file and right click inside the xml file and here click on SFDX:Retrieve Source in Menifest from org.

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Hi Ajay, Please look in your Objects folder - do you see Accounts, Contacts, Leads, Opportunity, etc?  

I know how to do what you wrote, but the default package.xml does not pull down Standard Objects like Accounts, Contacts, Opportunity, etc, when you right-click and SFDX: Retrieve Source in Manifest from Org.  

Thanks,  bA

1. You'll have Org Browser, after install plugin for Salesforce.
2. Retreive needed metadata
3. Open file explorer 
4. Find needed metadata in list 
5. File content 

Retrieve standard and all other objects from Salesforce instance
Please, mark answer if it's suitable for you.

Another option is to use the Package.XML Generator Add-On. When you choose Custom Object, it will pull all Standard and Custom Objects.
