Windows Terminal Gets Support for Multiple Panes

Microsoft has been making some serious updates to Windows Terminal lately. And today, the company is releasing another new update to introduce some new features.

Windows Terminal now has support for multiple panes with the latest updates. That means you can now split your Terminal window into multiple panes and have different terminals running side-by-side.

For now, the feature is a little limited. You can only open a new pane with your default profile, that means if you wanted to have CMD and Ubuntu running side-by-side with PowerShell, that won’t be possible just yet. Microsoft plans to introduce this feature with a future update. But for now, the feature is pretty decent considering you can have as many terminals as you want running side-by-side, and there are shortcuts that let you switch between the terminals quickly and resize each pane as you like.

The latest update also comes with the ability to re-order tabs. The new feature allows you to move the different tabs in your window around, much like a browser. This feature also needs a little work as the UI is a bit clunky for now. After all, Windows Terminal is still in preview.
