I generally open multiple terminal window using ctrl+shift+t. But since all tabs has same color, its very difficult to recognize which is the active tab. Is ther a way to change color of active tab??

  • I think this functionality is not available right now in terminal. It might be change request or enhacement for eOS. You can see over here that it have little highlighting. Is that okay?

Isn't there a white underline on the active tab?

Regardless you should probably install a different terminal emulator if you want more customizing ability. You can use Terminator.
