According to the official notes, this update brings the ability to set the Windows Terminal stable build as the default terminal for devices enrolled in the Dev Channel. The option is available through the Startup settings page or in the For developers page in the Settings app. When launching a console, the Windows Terminal will correctly handle the executable. This means that all of your customizations will appear if you have a profile with the same executable as the one selected to launch. In addition, you can now use the “firstWindowPreference”: “persistedWindowLayout” option to enable the ability for the terminal to restore your previous tabs and panes after relaunching. Finally, the Windows Terminal app now supports full transparency on Windows 11. As for other general improvements, version 1.12 includes the ability to select the text printed in your buffer with the keyboard. When using the terminal as an administrator, the window will now show a shield icon to the left of the tabs to make the window more distinguishable. It’s now possible to enable the “adjustIndistinguishableColors” profile setting to adjust the foreground color to make it more visible, based on the background color. When splitting a new pane, SplitState now accepts directional modifiers, and you can now open the system menu with Alt+Space, which uses the new openSystemMenu action. Windows Terminal 1.12 is now available as a preview with the new features mentioned above and several bug fixes, and you can download it from the Microsoft Store or GitHub. If you are using the stable channel of the app, you can now update to version 1.11, which includes all these improvements. All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
