Windows Terminal Preview v0.3 released with several new improvements in Microsoft Store


5, 2019

At Build 2019, Microsoft announced the new Windows Terminal app for Windows 10 users. Later in June, Microsoft released the first preview version of Windows Terminal app in Microsoft Store. Over the last weekend, Microsoft released Windows Terminal Preview v0.3 with several new features and improvements. Some of the improvements include improved dropdown button layout, draggable title bar, new settings and more. Read about them in detail below.

  • Draggable Title Bar: The Terminal is now DRAGGABLE FROM ANYWHERE ON THE TITLE BAR!!!
  • Improved Dropdown Button Layout: Additionally, the title bar now has a new look! The dropdown button has been resized as well as recolored and it now stays to the right of the last opened tab. The minimize, maximize, and close buttons have also been recolored to provide a uniform experience.
  • Accessibility: We have started to reintegrate some of the assistive technology we added to Windows Console back in Windows 10 1703 into the Windows Terminal.
  • Custom Tab Title: You can now define the tab title of each profile within your settings by setting the “tabTitle” property in a profile. Applying this setting will override the tab title provided by the profile’s shell. This can help distinguish between profiles and provide a more customized experience.
  • Additional Background Options: You are now able to add a background image on top of an acrylic background with a color tint using the properties “backgroundImage”, “useAcrylic”, and “background”!
  • Selection: When using your mouse to click and drag to select text within the Terminal, you are now able to drag your mouse outside the Terminal window to continue selecting text above/below.
  • Key Bindings: OEM keys ({}_+-=|/?<>:”;’) are now available for mapping within key bindings! Additionally, you are now able to have key bindings for copying, copying text without newline characters, pasting, and duplicating a tab!
  • Azure Cloud Shell Connector: You can now connect to the Azure Cloud Shell within the Terminal!
