Microsoft updates Windows Terminal preview with multiple panes and tab re-ordering
With the latest release of the Linux-inspired Windows Terminal preview, Microsoft just made the app a whole lot more useful and user-friendly.
The addition of a multi-pane option to Windows Terminal v0.7 means that it is now possible to run two terminals side by side -- something that will be appreciated by many users. Other changes include the arrival of tab re-ordering, and a thinning of the border around Terminal.
- Microsoft is blocking Windows 10 updates for some Avast and AVG Antivirus users
- Windows 10 November 2019 Update is seriously small, but Microsoft says not to get used to it
- Microsoft releases Windows 10 20H1 Build 19030… and the watermark has gone!
Writing on the Windows Command Line blog, program manager Kayla Cinnamon says: "You are now able to split your Terminal window into multiple panes! This allows you to have multiple command prompts open at the same time within the same tab".
She also explains that tabs can be re-ordered, and that you can now suppress all title change events that are sent from the application running within your Terminal
While there are several bug fixes in this release, it is still a preview version and issues remain, including with the new features. For now you're only able to open your default profile within a new pane, and tab re-ordering is currently not working when running the Terminal as administrator.
