Windows Terminal with git and right click menu

By Markus Johansson

I recently played around with Microsoft's new "Windows Terminal", a great new tool for working with different command-line tools in Windows.

I use the following setup:


My default setup for the Windows Terminal settings looks like this:

    // Put settings here that you want to apply to all profiles.
    "colorScheme": "One Half Dark", //"Tango Dark",
    "fontFace": "Cascadia Code PL",

    "useAcrylic" : true,
    "acrylicOpacity" : 0.9,

    "startingDirectory": "." //add this



 Also if you want the git-bash as one of the options on the dropdown for shells, just add this to the "list"-property in the Windows Terminal settings:

    "guid" : "{14ad203f-52cc-4110-90d6-d96e0f41b64d}",
    "name" : "Git Bash",
    "historySize" : 9001,
    "commandline" : "C:/Program Files/Git/usr/bin/bash.exe --login",
    "icon" : "C:/Program Files/Git/mingw32/share/git/git-for-windows.ico",
    "useAcrylic" : true,
    "acrylicOpacity" : 0.9,
    "padding" : "0, 0, 0, 0",
    "snapOnInput" : true


Note: The path to git might be different, sometimes something like c:/program files (x86)/
