Microsoft’s New Windows Terminal Preview Offers a Retro CRT Screen Effect

“The release of the Windows Terminal preview v0.8 has arrived!” announces a post on Microsoft’s Command Line blog:

Search functionality has been added to the Terminal! The default key binding to invoke the search dropdown is {“command”: “find”, “keys”: [“ctrl+shift+f”]}. Feel free to customize this key binding in your profiles.json if you prefer different key presses! The dropdown allows you to search up and down through the buffer as well as with letter case matching.

You can search through multiple tabs, reports the Verge — and those tabs can also be resized “so you can fit more tabs into View.” But they also note that Microsoft added some interesting retro-style CRT effects:
If you’re old enough to be a fan of CRT monitors then this one is for you. A new experimental feature will be enabled that includes the classic scan lines that you might have seen before the world switched to flat monitors and LCD technology.

To enable it just add the following code snippet to any of your profiles: “experimental.retroTerminalEffect”: true
