VS Code Terminal prompt starts with " (base) computer-name:filepath " and not just " username:~/filepath/ "

I just started a Udemy course on Node.js. The following is not for an assignment, but just an issue with the environment. I'm learning Node.js in order to finish my grad diploma capstone project asap and would really appreciate an answer to this issue. (Yes, I've also asked within the course.)

I'm on a MacBook Pro running MacOS Big Sur 11.6, VS Code Version: 1.61.0, Node.js v.16.11.1

My terminal in VS Code doesn't start with the same style of prompt as in the videos (or that my Mac terminal has done the last time I used it months ago).

(base) Elizabeths-MacBook-Pro:NODE-COURSE elizabethmccready$ cd notes-app
(base) Elizabeths-MacBook-Pro:notes-app elizabethmccready$ node app.js

Instead of:

elizabethmccready:~/filepath

My MacBook terminal also has a different prompt:

elizabethmccready@Elizabeths-MacBook-Pro ~ %

instead of:

elizabethmccready:~$

It's been almost a year since I've had to use my terminal window, so I'm really rusty. Also this is the last few weeks of my grad diploma and my brain is full. Cheers and thanks to anyone answering!
