The code is following, this will enable this same theme (image) over PowerShell, Command Prompt and Azure Cloud Shell.



            // Put settings here that you want to apply to all profiles.

            “backgroundImage” : “C:\\Users\\micha\\AppData\\Local\\Packages\\Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_8wekyb3d8bbwe\\RoamingState\\black-on-green.png”,

            “backgroundImageOpacity” : 0.75,

            “backgroundImageStretchMode” : “fill”


If you then want to customise the colour scheme scroll down in this .json file a little further until you see these blocks of configuration.

You will see in the PowerShell top block I have selected the One-Half Dark colour scheme.

You can find the default ones here that are available.

This also looks like a super site to create other custom themes for your setup

This takes 5 minutes to install and get custom.
