I have run SFDX: Create Project with Manifest and then successfully ran SFDX: Authorize an Org to connect it with my sandbox. Here is a part of my package.xml
Try as a might, right clicking on the package.xml and selecting SFDC: Retrieve Source in Manifest from Org does not fetch me the standard objects like Account, Opportunity etc though I see all Custom Objects are downloaded perfectly in my local system (all 50-60 of them).
I ran now SFDX: Refresh SObject Definitions but to no avail. I can not see Standard Objects in my local folder.
I could try to remove the wildcard from the package however then I have to type all the custom objects and standard object names. I would do it only if I am sure it is the last option as there are so many of them. Any help will be appreciated, thanks!
Add: I checked similar issue faced by user which is yet unsolved:
I have VS Code 1.37.1
