You should keep in safe zone by not tweaking around this pane. Maybe the setting you can change here is the prompt setting. If you enable it, Terminal will give you an alert when you closed the window, either with keystrokes Command-W or with command line
Not much of changes can be made here. Perhaps, checkbox 2, Option-Click to position cursor, and checkbox 7, Visual bell, can be enabled. With visual bell, Terminal will give you alert by flashing the window while with audible bell, Terminal will alert you by making an alert sound.
The default settings for buffer are already good enough. Buffer Size determines how many lines your Terminal can store previous commands.
Cursor and Font can be styled here. Underline cursor and no anti-aliasing text are my favorites.
Cursor, text and background color are set here. You also can set the transparency of the Terminal. There are also some of Mac predefined color selections, such as White on black.
Terminal dimension and display title can be set here. For easier switch across many Terminal windows, the checkbox labeled Command key should be checked. This will display shortcut, like Command-1, to be displayed as title.
All the available keys for Terminal are stored here. You can also add new keystrokes for your Terminal.
Don't forget to save your new Terminal styling.
