New Windows Terminal 1.20.11271.0 for Windows 10 and Windows 11

  • Staff

 github Terminal:

It feels like just a few days ago that 1.20 got updated in the preview channel! How strange...

Here are the highlights:
  • The new rendering engine is enabled by default for everyone!
  • We've rewritten resizing so that it's faster and more reliable.
  • Alternate Scroll Mode is on by default, so you can scroll pagers like less with the mouse wheel.

The new rendering engine is enabled by default, and the original one will be removed in 1.21.
Please report any issues you encounter with it.

Please see the following release notes for additional details.
Note that scrollbar marks and shell integration features are still considered experimental and
are not included in this stable release! However, they are slated for inclusion in 1.21 when it is released to the stable channel.

In addition, automatic search highlighting has been disabled for this release.

This version began rolling out to the Dev, Canary and Beta Windows Insider channels on 2024-05-07. Other channels will be released
as our reliability numbers indicate that we haven't broken anything. If you want to update to this release directly, download it below!

Why are there so many files? How do I choose?​
