    New Windows Terminal Preview v1.9.1445.0 for Windows 10 - May 25

    Last Updated: 26 May 2021 at 14:08
    Happy Microsoft Build 2021 and happy 2nd birthday to Windows Terminal! This release introduces version 1.9 to Windows Terminal Preview and migrates Windows Terminal to version 1.8. As always, you can install both builds from the Microsoft Store as well as from the GitHub releases page. Let’s get into what’s new!

    Default terminal

    You can now set Windows Terminal Preview as your default terminal emulator on Windows! This means that any command line application will launch inside your selected terminal emulator (i.e. double click on PowerShell and it will open inside Windows Terminal Preview by default ). This setting is currently in the Windows Insider Program Dev Channel build and can be found inside the console property sheet. We have also added this setting to the settings UI in Windows Terminal Preview.

    👉 Note: We are still working on improving this experience and any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated on GitHub! Currently known bugs are filed with the Area-DefApp label.

    How to Change Default Terminal Application in Windows 10

    Quake mode

    Windows Terminal now comes with quake mode! Quake mode allows you to quickly open a new terminal instance from anywhere in Windows by typing Win+`. The quake window will appear on the top half of your screen and can easily be dismissed with the same keyboard shortcut. If you want to further customize how you can summon the terminal, check out the new features we have added for global summon on our docs site.

    👉 Note: You cannot bind quake mode to a keyboard shortcut that is already bound in the OS. This includes PowerToys users who have Win+` bound for the FancyZones layout editor. The PowerToys team recently changed their default keyboard shortcut to Win+Shift+` to help avoid this conflict.

    Cascadia Code updates

    Cascadia Code Italic

    Cascadia Code now has an italic variant with cursive letterforms. This italic variant comes by default inside the terminal and can also be downloaded from GitHub. Font versions without “Italic” in their name will have a standard italic without the cursive letters. A huge thank you goes to Aaron Bell (@aaronbell) for designing Cascadia Code Italic and Viktoriya Grabowska for designing the italic Cyrillic characters!

    Arabic and Hebrew characters

    We are also adding Arabic and Hebrew characters to Cascadia Code in mid-June. These are being added to the existing Cascadia Code font set, however they will not yet be included in the italic font variants. A huge thank you goes to Mohamad Dakak for designing the Arabic characters and Liron Lavi Turkenich for designing the Hebrew characters! If you’d like to learn more about how the Arabic characters were designed, you can check out this document.

    👉 Note: We are still working on supporting RTL in Windows Terminal. You can follow our progress on this issue.

    Settings UI updates

    Editable actions page

    You can now edit your existing actions via the Actions page inside the settings UI. This makes it a lot easier to customize the keyboard shortcuts you like to use with Windows Terminal. We are still actively developing this page and we’d love any feedback you have! You can add your feedback as comments in this issue.

    Add new profile

    We have added a new page in the settings UI that lets you create a new profile. This page gives you the option to start a new profile from scratch or duplicate an existing profile.

    Profile appearance preview window

    As you edit your appearance settings of your profiles, you can now see what your changes will look like in the preview window inside the settings UI!

    Miscellaneous improvements

    🛠️ You can now disable URL detection with the "experimental.detectURLs" global setting.
    🛠️ The last selected pivot will remain selected when navigating through profile pages in the settings UI (Thanks @kovdu!).
    🛠️ When choosing a color scheme with the command palette, the terminal will update with a preview of each one before selecting.
    🛠️ You can now remove trailing white-spaces when copying text (Thanks @Don-Vito!).

    Bug fixes

    🐛 The terminal will no longer crash when setting a tab color using the --tabColor command line argument.
    🐛 The dropdown no longer randomly opens in the up direction (Thanks @mpela81!).
    🐛 Long tooltips no longer get cut off (Thanks @Don-Vito!).
    🐛 Clicking on the tab to focus the window now actually focuses the terminal window.
