Windows Console now support Zooming in latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build

Good news for regular Windows Console users. Microsoft has added the ability to zoom into the contents of the screen using the Control+ Mouse Scroll Wheel/ TrackPad combo.  This has become an increasingly pressing need as screen resolutions have increased further and further, making text-based user interfaces more difficult to read.

The feature is part of the Windows 10 Insider build #18272  and can be seen demoed below:

The feature is available in any Console window, including Powershell, Cmd, WSL and more.

Microsoft also notes that the Windows 10 Console now respects your theme, and will show a dark scrollbar when you use the Dark Theme.

Is this a game changer for our readers? Let us know below.
