At the conference for Developers earlier this year, Microsoft unveiled a completely new command line window application for the Windows operating system, called Windows Terminal. This will be an all-in-one central application, from which users can access and execute traditional cmd command lines, PowerShell commands and both Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) systems to run Linux command line window on Windows.

Windows Terminal application allows browsing multiple tabs, so that users can execute multiple command line windows at the same time. Microsoft also provides interface options and some other personalization features to assist developers who want to customize the Terminal command window to suit their personal preferences or needs. However, since the first version does not provide enough features, users will have to edit a JSON file if they want to customize all the options of this application. However, Microsoft also provides a guide to how to edit the JSON file, which instructs users how to change the background image of the Terminal command line window.
The Windows Terminal application also supports text rendering with a full graphics processor (GPU), and even allows users to insert emoticons (emoji). At the Build build conference, Microsoft demonstrated the ability to insert emoticons in a "fun" way into the Terminal window. At the same time, the text renderer of this application is based on DirectX, so the Terminal is fully capable of displaying text characters, decorative characters and special symbols installed on your computer. through the font.
