Get started with Terminal
Use your scripting experience and the features in Terminal to create, organize, and manage your shell scripts.
Make Terminal windows stand out with profiles
When you’re logged in to several servers, unique background colors and window titles specified in profiles help you easily spot the right Terminal window. Use profiles built into Terminal, or create your own custom profiles.
Navigate Terminal windows
Add marks and bookmarks as you work, then use them to quickly navigate through lengthy Terminal window output.
Use the inspector to view and manage running processes, and change window titles and background colors.
