Windows Terminal Warning: You are about to paste text that contains multiple lines

What is Windows Terminal

Windows Terminal is a multi-tabbed terminal emulator developed by Microsoft for Windows 10 and later as a replacement for Windows Console. It can run any command-line app in a separate tab. It is preconfigured to run Command Prompt, PowerShell, WSL, SSH, and Azure Cloud Shell Connector. Windows Terminal comes with its own rendering back-end, starting with version 1.11 on Windows 11, command-line apps can run using this newer back-end instead of the old Windows Console.


Windows Terminal was announced at Microsoft’s Build 2019 developer conference in May 2019 as a modern alternative to the Windows console. Windows Terminal source code first appeared on GitHub on May 3, 2019. The first stable version of the project (version 1.0) was released on May 19, 2020. Windows Terminal Warning: You are about to paste text that contains multiple lines, is a default setting.

Since Windows 11 22H2 and Windows Terminal 1.15, Windows Terminal replaces Windows Console as the default. It is an open source project and any welcome participation in the community.
