Microsoft is launching a new command line app for Windows, dubbed Windows Terminal. It’s designed to be the central location for access to environments like PowerShell, Cmd, and the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Microsoft is adding multiple tab support alongside theming and customization for developers who want to tweak the Terminal app.
Windows Terminal will also support emoji and GPU-based text rendering. Microsoft unveiled the new Windows Terminal app during the company’s Build developer conference today. The software giant is planning to make it available in mid-June, and it marks Microsoft’s latest efforts to improve the developer environment on Windows 10.
Microsoft also previously added the Linux command line to Windows 10 alongside adding native OpenSSH to the operating system and even listing Ubuntu in the Windows Store.
