    Exclamation Question About Terminal
    Hello Guys

    One my lecturers uses a MacBook Pro.

    His Terminal though is much better than mine ! He can have multiple tabs open ! plus he has a dark theme for it !

    How do I get that for my iMac Snow Leopard.

    Thank You.

    You can easily have multiple tabs open - push Command+T.

    Themes: Terminal > Preferences > Settings.

    If you go to Terminal > Preferences > Settings, that is where you can change the theme of Terminal. I am not sure how to make it tabbed though, sorry.

    Terminal menu, Preferences, Settings tab and set the Pro theme as the default.

    Thanks Guys.

    For the theme, his themes kept the default font ! that Pro theme messes up the fonts.

    So I manually reversed the colours on the default.

    All is good. ! Thank You Soo Much for the Help.
