Similar programs:

- nano - another lightweight terminal editor
- ed - older, more primitive Unix editor
- vi - ancestor of vim
- neovim - popular vim fork

How do you configure the font, font size, and theme (colorscheme) on gVim on Windows?

Open the Startup Settings: on the menu bar Edit -> Startup Settings.

Add this:

Code: Select all
