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.
