Last year Microsoft released a new Windows Terminal command line application with intensive updates based on user feedback. In a release update due next week, Microsoft plans to introduce retro-style CRT-themed effects. That’s good news for senior veterans or loyal ists of CRT displays. Microsoft says the new experimental feature will be available with next week’s update, which includes the classic scanning command line, which is widely used before entering the LCD.
In addition to the nostalgia journey, Microsoft has added some new features to Windows Terminal. Users can search across terminal tabs, look for inputs and outputs from various command lines, and resize tabs to accommodate more labels in the view. Microsoft has also added the ability to use custom key bindings to specify which profiles to open, while applying a single setting to all end profiles. You can now also open multiple command prompts side by side in the same tab of the terminal.
Microsoft has released a new beta version to its employees today and is expected to be available to all users on January 14.
