First, you’ll look at command line enhancements, such as the wt command, to perform more alias parameters. Users can now start terminals with new tabs and panes, starting with the user’s favorite directory, calling personalized profiles, and more free to play.

(1) wt -d command: you can use the default profile in the current working directory to open the terminal, such as wt -d . ; new-tab -d C: pwsh.exe

(2)wt -p 命令:打开两个垂直窗格的终端,比如 wt -p “Windows PowerShell” -d . ; split-pane -V wsl.exe

Examples show that the top pane is running a profile named Windows Terminal, and the bottom pane is using the wsl.exe command line based on the default profile.

比如 wt -d C:UserscinnamonGitHubWindowsTerminal ; split-pane -p “Command Prompt”; split-pane-p “Ubuntu” -d’wsl$’Ubuntu?home-cinnak-H

If you don’t want to be asked every time, ‘Are you sure you’re closing all labels?’ ‘You may want to create a new global setting to always hide the Close All Tabs confirmation dialog box.’
