  • Found the color themes at

    1. Download and extract the zip file
    2. Open "windowsterminal" folder
    3. Open any file (.json format)
    4. Copy the settings and paste them in "schemas" section of windows terminal settings

    After copying, it should look something like below

    // To view the default settings, hold "alt" while clicking on the "Settings" button.
    // For documentation on these settings, see:
        "$schema": "",
