How to change Visual Studio Code terminal font?


So, I had to reinstall my computer and set up the terminal all over again. Here’s what I typically need:

  • iTerm (That’s the one most of my gang use)
  • Oh My Zsh
  • powerlevel10k
  • zsh-syntax-highlighting
  • zsh-autosuggestions
  • fzf

I’ll give you a step-by-step on that soon. But for now, iTerm looks great.


But not VSCode’s terminal.



Step 1. Open settings.json in VSCode

Hit Command ⌘ + Shift ⇧ + P in VSCode, type settings and select Preferences: Open User Settings (JSON)

Step 2. Add this code into sertings.json

 "terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "MesloLGS NF",
 "terminal.integrated.defaultProfile.osx": "zsh",
 "terminal.external.osxExec": "iTerm.app",

If you’re wondering where I got “MesloLGS NF” from - You can find it on iTerm’s setting.

Just go to iTerm -> Settings -> Profiles -> Text -> Font

Step 3. Save & Restart VSCode

And voila! Your VSCode terminal should now have a new font.
