Microsoft rollout windows terminal through Windows Store

Finally, Microsoft has released its Windows Terminal app that available in preview form in the Microsoft Store. Windows Terminal is a terminal application for developers who use Command Prompt, PowerShell and the Windows 10 Windows Subsystem for Linux.

Kayla Cinnamon, a program manager for Microsoft, wrote in a blog post,

A top priority for Terminal is to include robust support for accessibility, as you have today in the default command-line experience on Windows. Much of this work is already complete and it’s our highest priority to support assistive technology in the next update to the Microsoft Store.


In the Microsoft Store, Windows Terminal showcase describes as a "very early preview release" with "many usability issues, most notably the lack of support for assistive technology."


The new Windows Terminal app will also include multiple tabs, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and custom themes, styles, and configurations.


Microsoft also published Windows Terminal on GitHub alongside its existing Windows Console Host, aka conhost.exe, the original Windows command-line app. Those who want to build the app themselves can use the Windows Terminal code on GitHub to do so.


Windows Terminal preview is available on Windows 10,  and to use this, you will need the latest build version 18362.0 or higher. This is an early preview of the app, and Microsoft assures that the final public version or Windows Terminal 1.0 will be released in winter.
