Windows TerminalÂ is a modern host application for the command-line shells you already love, like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and bash (via Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)). Its main features include multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and the ability to create your own themes and customize text, colors, backgrounds, and shortcuts.
By default, the tab title is set to the shell’s title. If a tab is composed of multipleÂ panes, the tab’s title is set to that of the currently focused pane.
You can rename a tab for the current terminal session, or set the tab title for a profile used for every terminal instance.
This tutorial will show you how to rename a tab title in Windows Terminal for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
