How To: Change Terminal Color Mac

Did you know Mac OS X Terminal actually comes with pre-defined profile colors you can choose from? In addition, you can change any of the pre-built colors to be any other color you want.


1. Open Terminal go to Terminal Menu -> Preferences and choose Profiles. 

2. Choose a color style profile of your choice. We like Homebrew. You can customize the color of Terminal background, text, bold text, selection, and cursor.
