Microsoft unveils Windows Terminal, a new command line app for Windows

Microsoft is launching a new command line app for Windows, dubbed Windows Terminal. It’s designed to be the central location for access to environments like PowerShell, Cmd, and the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Microsoft is adding multiple tab support alongside theming and customization for developers who want to tweak the Terminal app. Windows Terminal will also support emoji and GPU-based text rendering.

The software giant is planning to make it available in mid-June.
