Windows Terminal is Microsoft’s new command-line app. It allows for multiple tabs, and from each tab you also have the option of opening either the Windows PowerShell, Command Prompt, Azure Cloud Shell, or the plain PowerShell. Additionally, it is also preconfigured to run SSH and WSL. Windows Terminal can run any command-line app which includes all Windows terminal emulators.
The Windows Terminal app, otherwise known as the new Windows PowerShell, is the long-awaited app many Windows enthusiasts had been waiting for thanks to its ability to do far more than the typical command line which had become outdated. Interestingly, the Windows Terminal was initially available as a separate app that needed to be downloaded from the Microsoft Store; however, if you were to go to the Microsoft Store to download it now you would be prompted that it is already on your computer. You haven’t got memory issues; as stated above in recent Windows 10 updates you would now find the app on your computer as an Inbox app.
