Where to find color scheme working in reasonable way in new Windows 10 terminal/console?
Windows 10 Enterprise version 1909 in use yet none of color schemes available under terminal properties, tabs Colors and Terminal works in reasonable way - for every scheme there is a class of string badly visible on scheme's background. It suffice to use for instance grep tool in terminal (via ssh) to run onto problem pointed out.

    What do you mean by the new Windows 10 terminal? Are you talking about the Windows Terminal app? If so then please post your question in their GitHub repo. You should also read their posts as I recall that they talked about how to customize the themes if you don't like them.
