I just installed new windows 10 terminal. It is simply superb. I want to change the theme to black on white (currently it is white on black). Any configuration available for that? I got some configs for

  1. Campbell
  2. Solarized Light
  3. Solarized Dark and etc

I want the simple putty (black on white) theme


Found the color themes at https://github.com/mbadolato/iTerm2-Color-Schemes

  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: https://aka.ms/terminal-documentation

    "$schema": "https://aka.ms/terminal-profiles-schema",
