What you need to know
- The new Windows Terminal has appeared on the Microsoft Store, but it doesn’t work just yet.
- The Microsoft Store listing makes clear that this is an early preview version of the app.
- The new terminal was announced at Build 2019 and brings several new features.
One of the biggest announcements to come out of Microsoft’s Build 2019 conference earlier this year for developers was the new Windows Terminal, and so far it’s only been available in preview form via GitHub. However, Microsoft said the Windows Terminal app would hit the Microsoft Store this summer, and now it has delivered.
But don’t get your hopes up; it isn’t working just yet.
A Microsoft Store listing for the app was found by Twitter user Stanzilla (via Neowin), and it’s very clear that this is an early preview version. And by early, the app doesn’t work even if you manage to install it.
From the listing:
This very early preview release includes many usability issues, most notably the lack of support for assistive technology. Much of the internal work to support this is complete and it’s our top priority to support assistive technology very soon. To follow progress please follow this issue on GitHub: https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/issues/634
Affordable accessories that’ll pair perfectly with your PC
Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $230.
KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse ($30 at Amazon)
Whether you’re a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It’s ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that’s not your thing.
AmazonBasics USB speakers ($16 at Amazon)
These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don’t let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.
Razer mouse bungee ($20 at Amazon)
Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
