Chapter 15. Terminal: Doorway to Unix > Terminal's Window Preferences

15.5. Terminal's Window Preferences

Like most applications, Terminal has a Preferences command. You use it, among other things, to switch from bash to a different shell. (Turn on "Execute this command" and then type /bin/bash for bash, or /bin/csh for tsch. Then open a new Terminal window.)

However, you'll access most of Terminal's settings from the Terminal→Window Settings command instead; the Terminal Inspector window opens. If you spend endless hours staring at the Terminal screen, as most Unix junkies do, you'll eventually be grateful for the preference settings that let you control how Terminal looks and acts.
