Windows 10 users can now download the new Windows Terminal from the Microsoft Store. Microsoft introduced the new command-line Windows Terminal (cmd) a few months ago during the event. It’s a new central location where you can access the traditional cmd line, PowerShell, and the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
The new Terminal supports GPU-oriented text and even emojis. Microsoft promised to release the new version of Windows Terminal in mid-June. Windows Terminal program manager Kila Xinamoon said:
“The Terminal team is working towards creating a consistent schedule that offers regular previews and more frequent builds for those who want to get access to the latest features as they arrive. Windows Terminal 1.0 will arrive in the Microsoft Store this winter!”
