What’s new with Windows Terminal Preview 1.2.

Focus Mode

When this mode is enabled, you can hide the tab and title bar and display only the Terminal content. To enable focus mode, you can add a key value to the toggleFocusMode in the settings.json file.

“”command”.toggleFocusMode “toggleFocusMode”, “keys”: “shift-f11”

Always Top Mode (Always on Top Mode)

In addition to focus mode, you can always keep the Windows Terminal window at the top. This can be achieved through the alwaysOnTop global settings and key binding using the toggleAlwaysOnTop command.

New command.

New key binding commands have been added to give you more flexibility when interacting with Terminal.

Set the label color.

You can use the setTabColor command to set the color of your focus label, which uses the color property to define the color you want, and it accepts the color in the hexformatization format, i.e. the color of the srgb or the “rrggbb.” This command uses the color attribute to define the color you want, and it accepts the color in the hex format, i.e. the color of the hexadecimal format, that is, the color of the color, or the color of the r.

“”command”: “action”: “setTabColor”, “color”: “#ffffff”, “keys”: “ctrl-a”

Open the label color selector.

A new command has been added that allows you to open the label color selector menu. This can be done by opening TabColor Picker command. If you want to color the tab with your mouse, you can right-click on the tab to access the color selector.

“”command”. “OpenTab Color Picker”: “OpenTab Color Picker”, “keys”: “ctrl-b”

Rename the label.

You can rename the key tab with the renameTab command (thanks for ggadget6!) )。 You can also right-click or double-click the tab to rename it.

“”command”: “renameTab”, “keys”: “ctrl-c”

Switch retro effects.

You can use the ToggleRetroEffect command to switch retro terminal effects that add scan lines and glows to text. This will enable the x.retroTerminalEffect profile settings.

Cascadia Code font size.

Cascadia Code now has font weights! You can use fontWeight profile settings in Windows Terminal Preview to enable these font weights.

Command palette is almost complete! We’re fixing some bugs right now, but if you want to play with it, you can add the palette command to your key binding and then call it with the keyboard. This command is not bound by default.

Miscellaneous.

You can now use nt, sp, and ft as command-line parameters for new labels, split panes, and focus labels, respectively.

We now have the appropriate high-contrast mode logo.

Now, there is a warning when you paste a large amount of text and multiple lines of text. More information about disabling these warnings can be found on the global settings documentation page.

Bug fix:

Now you can run the wt as an administrator by pressing the Ctrl-Shift-Enter key in the run dialog box.

Print a large amount of text in WSL by 20% faster!

When there is output, if you scroll up or have a choice, the terminal will no longer scroll to the bottom.

The pseudo console will now forward the colors and styles emitted by the application with higher fidelity, thus greatly improving color expression. Microsoft today announced the release of Windows Terminal Preview 1.2, a new focus mode, a new always in top mode, support for font weights, etc. Find the full change log below.
