Windows Terminal is a more modern command-line tool that has features including “multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and the ability to create your own themes and customize text, colors, backgrounds, and shortcuts“.
This post is a quick guide on installing Windows Terminal with a how-to on running a PowerShell session as Administrator.
I’m installing using Chocolatey, the Windows package manager. Note, a reboot is required post install.
choco install microsoft-windows-terminal
Search and open Windows Terminal.
Click the drop-down to open new tabs and you’re good to go.
Run the command below and a new Windows Terminal will open.
Start-Process -Verb RunAs cmd.exe '/c start wt.exe -p "Windows PowerShell"'
And here’s a typical command that would require admin elevation.
