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

or...

  • 76 to 255.
