The Tabs feature allows you to organize a window into multiple terminal sessions. Tabs can be customized with a title and/or an ANSI color to help identify them.

New Tabs will default to the active Tabs’ current Working Directory and the actual color values will be automatically derived from your Warp Theme.

Terminal Tip Using your .zshrc or .bashrc files, you can set a new Tab name:

# Set name, where MyTabName would be whatever you want to see in the Tab ( either a fixed string, $PWD, or something else )
function set_name () {
  echo -ne "\033]0;MyTabName\007"
# Add the function to the environment variable in either Zsh or Bash
if [ -n "$ZSH_VERSION" ]; then
elif [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then
