Microsoft is rolling out somewhat of a major update to Windows Terminal. The company today announced a new preview release of Windows Terminal Preview 1910, and it includes a number of new features.

Windows Terminal now has a new look for the tabs at the top of the app, which now feature improved color contrast, rounded corners on the dropdown, and tab separators. It also now includes buttons that let you scroll through the tabs when you have a lot of tabs opened at once. The tabs in Windows Terminal use WinUI TabView, and Microsoft’s now using a newer version of the library within Windows Terminal for the improved UI.

Another important part of the latest Windows Terminal update is its ability to automatically detect all your Windows Subsystem for Linux distributions. That means you will no longer have to dig into the settings to manually enable a new distribution that you may have just installed. Instead, you would have to get into the settings to disable it if you don’t want certain distributions to show up.

Windows Terminal’s latest preview release includes a couple of other new features, and you can find the full changelog here.
