      Not a dark "theme" but an actual "Dark Mode" like Chrome's "High Contrast" mode... Intelligently invert colors...

      White on black page: transform to gray on black
      Black on white page: transform to gray on black

      Just keep the brightness away...

              Re: " don’t see why symlink access is restricted by default…"

              Please read our announcement blog for more background on relaxing symlink creation restrictions for developers: https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2016/12/02/symlinks-windows-10

              Also note the following:
              https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-vista/cc766301(v=ws.10)#create-symbolic-links

              Imagine if symlinks could be created using standard non-admin rights: What would stop a piece of malware from creating symlinks that redirect an existing Word doc to a Word doc with an malicious payload. Symlinks pose VERY serious security threats which is why creating them has been a restricted right since Vista.

                  Yes, definitely love the idea of TABS for CONHOST (without buggy ConEmu in the way) and support from TMUX and SCREEN... Windows is getting better and better. Very excited to have Bash on Windows today!

                    Yes, this would be an excellent idea. Sixel is getting to be more and more common on the Linux side, yet there are far more Windows workstations in the world than Linux. Supporting Sixel in conhost (assuming it doesn't significantly delay opening a shell) would be an excellent way to make Windows the preferred development environment!

                      As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.

                      Agreed. It's 2016! UTF-8 really needs to be the default for conhost. If you need to choose another codepage, then choose it as an option, but UTF-8 is the sensible default.
