Windows Terminal 1.14.196 released to Windows 10 and Windows 11

  • Staff
This servicing release of Windows Terminal v1.14 originally became available in the GA channel on July 19th.

There is a known issue in this release of Windows Terminal that may result in difficulty restoring the Terminal window from a minimized state.

Preinstallation Kit info
A preinstallation kit is available for system integrators and OEMs interested in prepackaging Windows Terminal with a Windows image. More information is available in the DISM documentation on preinstallation. Users who do not intend to preinstall Windows Terminal should continue using the msixbundle distribution.

Why are there so many packages? How do I choose?
This version of Windows Terminal is distributed in two bundles, one of which works on Windows 10-11 and the other of which only works on Windows 11. The Windows 11 version is much smaller because we no longer need to work around a platform issue related to our dependencies.

If you intend on using Terminal as an unpackaged application--that is, extracting the msix file--we recommend that you use the Win10 bundle. You will need the Visual C++ runtime redistributable.

In addition, if you install the packaged version on either Windows 10 or Windows 11, it now depends on the Visual C++ Universal Runtime Package.

Despite these distributions having different version numbers, they are built from the same code and there is no functional difference between them.

If you install the Windows 10 version on Windows 11, it will probably automatically upgrade itself to the Windows 11 version. It turns out that it is impossible to have two bundles with the same version number, so it has to be this way.

It contains the following fixes:
  • Enabling "read-only" mode for a pane will no longer result in a read only dialog appearing every time you focus, un-focus, move, highlight, or otherwise interact with the terminal inside it. Sorry about that! (#13483)
  • We've enabled word wrapping on more of the tooltips in the application (#13463)
  • The "Quake ™️ mode" window will no longer launch in full screen when the full screen launch mode is selected (#13473)
  • The "debug tap" now includes line breaks to make it easier to read (#13475)
