Windows Terminal Preview 1.10 released, stable version 1.9 is on the way

Microsoft just announced a new version of Windows Terminal Preview 1.10. Here's a quick overview of new features.


Windows Terminal is a young, but already extremely popular app that hosts traditional console tools like cmd.exe and PowerShell. It ads some fun to the boring command line experience by using graphic acceleration and image support. It now comes bundled with Windows 10 (very recent versions) and Windows 11 (currently in Preview).

What's new in Windows Terminal Preview 1.10

  • A new Command palette button in the menu drop down is a nice addition to the Ctrl+Shift+P hotkey that makes the feature more discoverable.Windows Terminal 1.10 Command Pallete
  • Windows Terminal in Quake mode now puts an icon in system tray. Clicking on it reopens the app even when its taskbar instance is closed.Quake Mode Tray Icon
  • Windows Terminal now displays bold text in the text renderer.Bold Text
  • A new "Defaults" profile will allow you to apply all the customizations made in there to all other Windows Terminal profiles.Defaults Profile

  • The percentage sign is now added to all opacity slider values
  • You can now close tabs by index
  • Font settings can now be represented as an object in your settings.json file.
