Windows Console: CTRL + Scroll to zoom and Dark Theme Scrollbar

Rich Turner

Many of you have been asking for Windows Console to support zoom. Well, today is your lucky day! 😜 Install today’s Windows 10 Insider build #18272 and you can!

How does one perform this magic? After upgrading to Win10 Insider build #18272 or later, open any Console window (E.g. launch Cmd, PowerShell, WSL, etc.) and then hit and hold CTRL while scrolling your mouse wheel / trackpad.

The observant will also notice that Console now honors your Light/Dark Theme settings: If you are using the Dark Theme, your Console’s scroll-bar is also dark-themed! We call this the Halloween 2018 Feature 😀
