This post will help you change font size for a Windows Terminal profile on Windows 10 computer. There are so many interesting Windows Terminal Tips and Tricks available that users find quite useful. One of such tips is to change the default font size. You can set the font size between 1 to 128 for any profile (like Command Prompt, PowerShell, etc.). The default font size set for a profile in Windows Terminal is 12. While some users find it satisfactory, others want to increase or decrease font size from time to time. If you also want to do that, this post covers some simple steps for that.
Apart from changing the font size, Windows Terminal also provides the feature to set font-weight. You will be able to set font-weight to Normal, Bold, Semi-Light, Thin, Extra-Light, Semi-Bold, Medium, Black, Extra-Black, Extra-Bold, or custom (between 0 to 1000). So, depending on the font size set by you, you can select a font-weight that will best fit that font size.
