Earlier this year Microsoft introduced a new Windows Terminal app that brings modern features to the operating system’s various command line tools.

Among other things, it brings a tabbed user interface, support for using PowerShell, the Windows Command Prompt, and Windows Subsystem for Linux from the same app, support for backgrounds, and GPU-accelerated text rendering.

This week Microsoft released the third public preview, which brings new features including early support for Windows accessibility features, new settings, and a bunch of bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. There I was hoping for a built in serial/tcp terminal. I appreciate there are good open source alternatives such as YAT but it would be nice to have it built in.

  2. I use the touchpad on an xps 15 to scroll. I stopped using the new windows terminal mostly because it scrolls too fast. Perhaps if they fixed this it may be worth using.
