Powershell Colors and Icons

Jeff Hill has fun with terminals:

If you have followed along with me before, chances are you know I like color. Color helps me zoom in on the information I want faster. Color can help me know if I have the right number of curly braces. Modern browsers and word processors show a red squiggly line when you misspell a word. Your eye is drawn to that bit of color that is different than the rest of the page. Keep reading and I’ll show you how to add some spice to your PowerShell experience.

I heartily endorse the mention of Windows Terminal later on. If you haven’t tried it before, it’s a worthy successor to CMD and the basic Powershell terminal.
