Microsoft rolled out the Windows Terminal Preview version 0.3. This is the biggest update for Terminal to date, the goal of this tool is to become the default command-line app for those who need this functionality. The app, which launched two months ago, will co-exist with the Command Prompt and PowerShell, but offers more functionality.

One of the new features is the ability to drag the Terminal screen from any where on the title bar. It also has a new dropdown button layout, enhanced accessibility features, new settings, custom tab titles, additional background options, new selection and key bindings, as well as an Azure Cloud Shell Connector.

Full details on what's new can be found at the Windows command Line Tools For Developers blog. You can download Windows Terminal via the Microsoft Store.
