    How do I install ColorTool?


    I downloaded the latest version of ColorTool so I could customise Windows Terminal.

    Inside the .zip there is an .exe file and a schemes folder. When I double click on the .exe file it flashes up a terminal window, which closes and nothing else happens.

    I have no idea how to install it or what to do now! It says I should place the ColorTool utility in my path, but I don't know where to put it.

    Any help to get me up and running is appreciated.

    You have to open a CMD window to run the .exe,not the other way around.

    Got that bit working, thanks!!

    Problem is...I can't change the schemes! I have the schemes in my profiles.json file, but I don't know how to change them over. Do you know how to do this please?

    Most of the tutorials are for the CMD prompt, not the Windows Terminal. When I right mouse click on the menu bar nothing happens.

    That works ok for cmd prompt, but I'm using Windows Terminal. Right mouse click doesn't do anything when I click on the toolbar of Windows Terminal.

    Brink does need to change that tutorial title and add in the new terminal app stuff if not in the tutorials.

    Yes bro67, I agree with you. It can get a little confusing.
