I have used Scott Hanselman’s tips in the past regarding setting up Windows Terminal and then updating to newer fonts.

He recently publised a post about using terminal icons . I think they look great.

I had a small hiccup where my icons were not displaying correctly. A search on Stackoverflow got me here How to get @DevBlackOps Terminal-Icons module working in PowerShell on Windows

After following the tips by snsnsjsn, I got my Windows Terminal ( both Windows Powershell and Powershell ) displaying correctly.

Windows Terminal

My profile (notepad $profile) looks like

Import-Module posh-git
Import-Module oh-my-posh
Import-Module Terminal-Icons

Set-PoshPrompt -Theme jandedobbeleer

And the Windows Terminal > properties > Settings has entires for

                "fontFace": "CaskaydiaCove NF",
