Using Unicode characters in Git Bash under Windows

Hello, campers,

I am starting to learn Git and during the first setup I saw this message:
"Warning: your console font probably does not support Unicode. If you come across some strange characters in the output, consider to switch to a TrueType font such as Consolas! ".

Could someone explain to me how I should fix this?

Hi @angeniandre!

I am not exactly sure what you were doing with git when you received this message but I googled your message and received a lot of results.

So, the answer might be in one of those search results.

Good luck!

Some character types, like emojis, are supported by Git but may not be printable in your console. If you see weird characters in your console, that’s why.

Thanks, @ArielLeslie, I think that this is the reason.
