This week, Microsoft added theme support to Windows Terminal, a powerful terminal app for users of command-line tools like PowerShell and Command Prompt. It is expected that this innovation will soon be available to all users of the application.
Windows Terminal users can change the appearance of tabs, windows, and background images. In addition, the application now always uses the dark theme by default instead of focusing on the Windows theme. It should be noted that creating Windows Terminal themes can be a daunting task for inexperienced users. The fact is, you can only change them by editing the JSON file. Microsoft has provided several sample JSON files to help users get started with new themes by getting creative and combining different colors.
Kayla Cinnamon, program manager for Windows Terminal, noticed that developers have changed the default theme colors in Windows Terminal “for a more holistic appearance”. At the same time, a new text rendering engine has been integrated, supporting bold and underlined text, hyperlinks, etc. Keep in mind that Microsoft plans to make Windows Terminal the default application for working with the command line in Windows 11.
