The new Windows Terminal is now available for download from the Microsoft Store
Microsoft unveiled the new Windows Terminal at Build 2019 finally bringing features to the Windows command line that *nix users have been enjoying for a long time. With Windows Terminal, users get GPU-accelerated text rendering, ability to simultaneously use multiple command line tools such as PowerShell, WSL, CMD in a tabbed interface, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, custom themes, and more.
Up till now, developers could install the Windows Terminal preview by manually compiling the source code made available on GitHub. Now, as promised, Microsoft has released an installer to the Microsoft Store to allow more users to test it out. You need to be running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 18362.0 or higher) to download the preview. If you are a developer, you can still compile up to date code available on GitHub and run it alongside the Store version simultaneously.
Upon installation, users will be greeted with a standard terminal interface that does not offer any of the snazzy themes or customizations. Microsoft provides directions for editing the profiles.json file that is accessible by clicking on Settings. You can customize options such as the acrylic background, set a custom background image, write custom key bindings for different functions, and more. Check out the Source link below for more information.
The Windows Terminal team writes that they are working to create a "consistent schedule that offers regular previews and more frequent builds for those who want to get access to the latest features as they arrive". Version 1.0 of the Windows Terminal will be available on the Microsoft Store this winter. In the meantime, you can check out the early preview version from the Microsoft Store here.
