Windows Terminal v.1.0 is out! Personally I used (and still do) to work with Cmder but I’ve been using it for some time now, in my daily routine, and work side-by-side with Windows Terminal. Quite flexible with nice UI. Deeper integration with the underlying OS and quite a customization you can do to make it more personal.
There are blogs from two people who blog about it a lot: Scott Hanselmann and Thomas Maurer. Google and find the most recent ones on how to go about it.
Note: If you install Terminal manually:
- Be sure to install the Desktop Bridge VC++ v14 Redistributable Package otherwise Terminal may not install and/or run and may crash at startup
- Also, a downside is that you need to manually update it when a new version comes out
If you are Chocolatey fan, you can -unofficially- install it using the following command:
choco install microsoft-windows-terminal
or you can upgrade to the latest one with:
choco upgrade microsoft-windows-terminal
