    How to Change Tab Width Mode in Windows Terminal app in Windows 10


    The Windows Terminal is a modern, fast, efficient, powerful, and productive terminal application for users of command-line tools and shells like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and WSL. Its main features include multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and custom themes, styles, and configurations.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 21337, Windows Terminal is now an inbox app.

    You can change the tab width mode in Windows Terminal to set the width of the tabs to one of the following modes:

    • Equal makes each tab the same width.
    • Title length sizes each tab to the length of its title.
    • Compact will shrink every inactive tab to the width of the icon, leaving the active tab more space to display its full title.
