Nerd Fontsโ€‹

Oh My Posh was designed to use Nerd Fonts. Nerd Fonts are popular fonts that are patched to include icons. We recommend Meslo LGM NF, but any Nerd Font should be compatible with the standard themes.

To see the icons displayed in Oh My Posh, install a Nerd Font, and configure your terminal to use it.


Oh My Posh has a CLI to help you select and install a Nerd Font (beta):


This command needs to be executed as admin. The fonts are installed system wide.

oh-my-posh font install

Windows Terminalโ€‹

Once you have installed a Nerd Font, you will need to configure the Windows Terminal to use it. This can be easily done by modifying the Windows Terminal settings (default shortcut: CTRL + SHIFT + ,). In your settings.json file, add the font.face attribute under the defaults attribute in profiles:

"face": "MesloLGM NF"

Other Fontsโ€‹

If you are not interested in using a Nerd Font, you will want to use a theme which doesn't include any Nerd Font icons. The minimal themes do not make use of Nerd Font icons.

Creating your own theme is always an option too ๐Ÿ˜Š
