The Windows Terminal app is getting a new upgrade that increases the version number to "1.17," while also adding new features, fixes, and improvements.

The Windows Terminal now includes the ability to customize the drop-down menu in the tab area. After you close a process, you can now close the pane or relaunch it. You may now control the Windows Terminal's launch position using the Settings interface rather than updating the Settings.json file.

Customization of the drop-down menu

The drop-down menu in the tab area can now be changed by opening the Settings.json file.

After you close a process, it's now possible to close it with the "Ctrl + D" keyboard shortcut, or restart it with "Enter."

mica support for Windows Terminal is now available.

This release includes support for the mica design background material. This visual capability may be enabled from the Settings.json file by setting useMica to true in your theme settings.

Instead of changing the Settings.json file, you may now control the Windows Terminal's launch position from the Settings interface.

Update to the Color Schemes page

A color scheme (per profile) can now be configured for the System Light and System Dark themes as well as the Application theme.

This release includes a number of minor tweaks as well as major improvements.

Windows Terminal 1.17 is now available as a demo version, with all of the above features as well as some bug fixes, and you may download it from the Microsoft Store or GitHub. If you already have Windows Terminal 1.16, you may update to it.
