How do I hide the terminal path in Visual Studio under Windows Server? Currently it's showing this: PS C:\Users\user-name> I want to only show PS instead of the whole path there. Thank you.

    Hi, You can just add a prompt function to your PowerShell profile $HOME\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Profile.ps1

    function prompt{"PS >"}
    

    Best Regards,

    Thank you for the response. Is there a way to add this setting to my User > settings.json file? If so, what's the correct syntax? Thanks!
