During Build 2019, Microsoft introduced Windows Terminal. It’s a new tool to make life easier for users of Command Prompt, Windows Powershell, and Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Kayla Cinnamon is the Microsoft programming manager and responsible for the new tool. She revealed on Twitter the new Windows Terminal icon. Check out:
The new Windows Terminal has features such as multiple tabs, GPU-accelerated DirectWrite / DirectX-based text rendering engine, shortcuts, emoji-compatible fonts. Moreover, it also has a host of other features that will allow the user to customize the tool’s appearance. According to Microsoft, the idea is to “elevate the user experience of command lines in Windows 10.”
Windows Terminal will be released on the Microsoft Store in Windows 10. And it will feature updates independent of operating system updates.
