The new Windows Terminal is almost done and the most recent build fixes the one bug that kept me from using it.

Configure Tower to use the new Windows Terminal

Windows Terminal now supports command-line arguments to open specific terminals and in specific directories. Which means you can now configure other tools to launch specific terminals in the directory you're in.

To configure Tower to launch the Windows Terminal is now simple:

Title: Windows Terminal
Path: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\wt.exe
Arguments: -d . 

Configure Tower to use the new Windows Terminal
Adds Windows Terminal to Tower

To launch specific profiles, add: -p {profile name}.

To easily find the location of Windows Terminal, run where wt from a command line:

Configure Tower to use the new Windows Terminal
Find the path to your wt executable.

Configure Tower to use the new Windows Terminal
It worky-worky!
