Profile Power: Adjust Console Opacity

WMF 5.1 comes with some cool improvements to the console. One of which I enable via my $profile, the script that runs when I start the PowerShell.exe host.



The WindowsAlpha registry value determine the opacity of the console, as does the Opacity slider below.



What's in my $profile then?


Set-ItemProperty -Path HKCU:\console -Name WindowAlpha -Value 205


 WindowsAlpha adjusts the console opacity between 30% and 100%:

  • 0x4C to 0xFF


  • 76 to 255.
