The code has been available to download and compile for a little while, but now Microsoft has released a ready-made Windows Terminal app for anyone to try out.

During Microsoft's annual Build event this year, the company gave the crowd of developers a glimpse of Windows Terminal, it's new command line app. You need to be running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 18362.0 or higher) to download the preview.

The highlight about the new Windows Terminal app is the convergence of the command line, PowerShell and Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), all in one app. Microsoft has made it highly customisable so that developers can tweak around with it as per their needs.

"A top priority for Terminal is to include robust support for accessibility, as you have today in the default command-line experience on Windows". You can customize options such as the acrylic background, set a custom background image, write custom key bindings for different functions, and more. 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. Microsoft hasn't yet revealed when it plans to release a non-preview version of the program.

This very early preview release includes many usability issues, most notably the lack of support for assistive technology. "Windows Terminal 1.0 will arrive in the Microsoft Store this winter!"
