Windows Terminal is a new multi-tabbed tool for console-based shells. It is officially available via the Microsoft Store and currently requires Windows 10 1903 or better.
To install it from the Microsoft Store, you need to register yourself which is frustrating. If you want to install Windows Terminal anonymously (and have installed Chocolatey in the previous tip), simply run this line from an elevated PowerShell:
# download installation code $code = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1' -UseBasicParsing # invoke installation code Invoke-Expression $code # install windows terminal choco install microsoft-windows-terminal -y
Once Windows Terminal is installed, you can launch it via the “wt” command.
