    How to Change Cursor Shape of Windows Terminal Profile 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 select the cursor shape of a profile in Windows Terminal to be Vintage ( ▃ ), Bar ( ┃ ) (default), Underscore ( ▁ ), Double underscore ( ‗ ), Filled box ( █ ), or Empty box ( ▯ ).

    If you select the Vintage cursor, you can set its height from 25 to 100 percent.
