Missing color syntax highlighting for javascript files in VS2017

I had an issue with Javascript files having no color syntax highlighting in Visual Studio 2017.

I first found this:
https://github.com/Microsoft/TypeScript/issues/14422 
which focused on a TypeScript related problem and didnt help my issue.

I have ReSharper installed, enabling the settings below solved my issue:

To toggle ReSharper syntax highlighting Open the Code Inspection | Settings page of ReSharper options. Use the Color Identifiers check box to enable or disable ReSharper syntax highlighting. Click Save to apply the modifications and let ReSharper choose where to save them, or save the modifications to a specific settings layer using the Save To drop-down list. For more information, see managing and sharing resharper settings.
