A dark theme for PowerShell and 50+ apps

PowerShell Theme Preview

PowerShell Console

A dark theme for the Windows 10 Console, supports both PowerShell and cmd.exe.

Theme Installation

  1. Download and unzip ColorTool. The source code is available from Microsoft.
  2. Open PowerShell, navigate to unzipped ColorTool directory, and run ColorTool.exe -b Dracula.ini.
  3. Right-click on the window titlebar and choose Properties, then on the Font tab choose Consolas. Click OK to save.
    • Note that this step is required, even if your font is already set to Consolas, due to the way that the windows console saves its settings.

For cmd.exe support, perform the same steps above but in a cmd.exe window.

PowerShell prompt

  1. Install the 1.0 version of posh-git.
    • It's currently prerelease, so you'll need to install it with Install-Module -Name posh-git -AllowPrerelease -Force
    • If you don't have an -AllowPrerelease flag, upgrade PowerShellGet with Install-Module -Name PowerShellGet -Force first.
  2. Ensure the latest version of PSReadLine (2.0 or later) is installed. It's installed by default in Windows 10, but you'll most likely need to upgrade it.
  3. Include this powershell configuration in your PowerShell $profile file.

cmd.exe prompt

Set the environment variable prompt to $E[1;32;40m→ $E[1;36;40m$p$E[1;35;40m› $E[1;37;40m
