Microsoft continues to work on the design and features of Windows Terminal. It can be set as the default in Windows 11.
The preview for Windows Terminal 1.12 was released together with the final version of Windows Terminal 1.11. The preview version brings some new features, including restoring tabs and panes after closing the terminal. This can be done with the “firstWindowPreference” option: “persistedWindowLayout” in the global settings of the settings.json file or in the settings of the Start page.
A stable version of Windows Terminal can now be set as the default terminal emulator in both Windows 11 and the Windows Insider Program Dev Channel. Each command line application will then automatically open in it. You can set it as the default application in Windows settings or in Windows Terminal settings.

The strength of the transparency effect can be adjusted with the key combination Ctrl | Shift and simultaneous scrolling vary. Only the font remains visible at the highest level, as Microsoft demonstrates with an example:
Other changes in Preview 1.12 include some fixed bugs and the option to use the keyboard to mark text output in the buffer.
