New York (The Verge) — Microsoft’s Windows Terminal is getting retro-style CRT effects, search, and more theverge.com/2020/1/9/21059….
Microsoft is taking a nostalgic back to the days before LCD. Windows Terminal is getting retro-style CRT effects with scan lines. The app is also getting a search feature and better tab resizing.
Alongside the nostalgia trip, Microsoft is also adding some new functionality to Windows Terminal. You’ll be able to search through terminal tabs to find input or output from various commands, and tab resizing is being added so you can fit more tabs into view. Microsoft is also adding the ability to specify a profile to open using custom key bindings, alongside applying a single setting to all terminal profiles.
All of these improvements follow a recent update to Windows Terminal that introduced split view support. You can now have multiple command prompts open side-by-side in the same tab within Terminal. Microsoft has released a test version that includes these new changes to employees today, and it will roll out to everyone else on January 14th. — Tom Warren/@verge
