Windows Terminal Preview 1.14 allows applying the background image to entire window

Microsoft today released the stable version of Windows Terminal 1.13. It includes all the changes from the appropriate preliminary release. At the same time, the Redmond firm issued a new version of Windows Terminal Preview 1.14. The latter has got new actions, and also allows setting one background image to your entire Terminal window, instead of each split panel has its own background.

The minimum supported version of Windows 10 for Windows Terminal 1.13+ has been increased from 18362 (19H1) to 19041 (20H1).

Background image for entire window

A new feature in Windows Terminal allows using a single background image applied to the entire window. Previously, each of the panels used its own background.

The new experimental.useBackgroundImageForWindow option allows you to apply the background image of the current profile to the entire window:

"experimental.useBackgroundImageForWindow": true

New actions

You can now select all the text in the buffer by using the selectAll action, which has its own keyboard shortcut set to Ctrl+Shift+A by default.

Other changes

Visual changes made to the tabs, scrollbar, new tab button, caption buttons, color picker, settings UI, command palette, and search box have been made to move Terminal closer to the Windows 11 design language.

Terminal is now aware of toggled state for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock.

Windows created by console applications now appear above the terminal.

And more. The official announcement is here.

Windows Terminal releases are available on GitHub.

Also, you can install Windows Terminal and Windows Terminal Preview from the Microsoft Store.
