How did you patch your fonts on WSL? I noticed some icons are not displaying on my terminal. I use fira code

The one I was using was from the power line font pack, there is a patched power line pack. I'm not sure if that had First.

However, there is now Nerd Fonts (github.com/ryanoasis/nerd-fonts) which is a much larger pack of patched fonts - still not sure if first is in that.

To use any of the forms from any pack, simply unzip the font you want, install it on windows in the normal manner (right click & install iirc) then restart the shell and check the shell properties to select the new font.

I don't like the amount of information being displayed there. Any tip on how to make it lean like yours?

Thank You
