Windows Terminal now enables colourful themes for personalising your development environment
This week, Microsoft will provide complete theme support to its Windows Terminal. Windows Terminal users may customize the look of tabs, the window, and even the background pictures for the Terminal interface. Microsoft has also modified Windows Terminal such that it always uses a dark theme rather than the Windows system theme.
Unless you’re a developer, creating themes for Windows Terminal is a difficult task. Themes can only be edited using a JSON file, and they will show in the theme option in the Windows Terminal settings area. Microsoft has supplied some example JSON to get users started, and you can be as creative as you want with the color and backdrop picture combinations.
