How do you set the 16 Terminal Colors for Git-Bash?

Is there a different way to set the 16 terminal colors for git-bash? Ideally, I’d like to know the location of a config file so that editing is easier, and the settings are portable.

It seems the only way I can see so far is to manually edit the boxes from the properties window, but this is buggy and tedious – you can’t use hex strings, and selecting the color to inspect it sometimes alters the color wildly.

  • Does anyone know what the git bash program for windows uses for its shell?
  • Why is a git prompt showing up in my cmd.exe window when I execute a shell script?
  • Git add through python subprocess
  • Git on cmd windows

    Since git-bash is an old version of mintty, I tried altering my .bashrc their way, but that failed to work as well. Any hints would be appreciated.

    Console colors are stored in the registry under HKCU/Console/[window name]/ColorTable00-15.

    [window name] is either “Git Bash” for the start menu entry or something like “C:_Program Files (x86)_Git_git-cheetah_.._bin_sh.exe” for the Windows Explorer context menu entry (supplied by Git-Cheetah).

    Alternatively, the registry settings can be overridden by storing an NT_CONSOLE_PROPS structure with appropriate ColorTable settings in the “Git Bash.lnk” shortcut via IShellLinkDataList::AddDataBlock. This happens e.g. if you edit the properties of a console window started via shortcut, or if you edit the shortcut properties directly.

    If you want the values from the registry instead, create a new “Git Bash.lnk” shortcut from scratch and leave the Options/Font/Layout/Colors tabs alone.
