Microsoft has released a new preview for Windows Terminal, and anyone who considers themselves a keyboard warrior (probably all heavy terminal users) will like the latest features. Version 1
Windows Terminal has come a long way since the boring look of Windows 7 and 8. These days it has themes and you can add custom wallpapers, it supports tabs so you do not need a dozen windows open, and Unicode, and it is even open source.
But it’s not perfect yet, and Microsoft is not ready to stop. In the latest preview of Windows Terminal, Microsoft added a command palette and advanced tab switch.
The command palette allows you to retrieve all commands in Windows Terminal with a shortcut. If you need more commands, you can add them to a settings.json file, or use it to change the keyboard command to bring up the palette.
The advanced category switches will also please keyboard fanatics, as you can easily change the tab without using the mouse. Instead, Ctrl + Tab and Ctrl + Shift + Tab let you move between the next and previous tabs. Or you can use Ctrl + C to pull up a tab search to find a specific category.
And to keep your tabs organized, you can now assign them colors for easy eye scanning. Take a look at Microsoft’s blog for a complete overview of how to change settings and take advantage of the new features.
You can download the latest preview of Windows Terminal from the Microsoft Store.
