Change the Terminal Name in VSCode

In working with RedwoodJS I often have a few running terminals that I switch between. By default the terminal name is usually the type running (bash, powershell, node, etc.) so it can be confusing when you have multiple terminals to run simultaneously.

Today's quick lesson:

Changing the terminal name in VS Code


  1. Select the terminal you want to rename
  2. Press CTRL+Shift+P / โ‡งโŒ˜P and search for terminal rename
  3. Enter the name you want and press enter

Done. Your terminal has been renamed! ๐ŸŽ‰

I hoped this helped you. If there are other quick tips you'd like, or more in depth topics you'd like me to cover, leave a comment or reach out to me,

Thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป
