Testing Server vNext Preview/ New #PowerShell Console in Azure

Published 01/10/2014 - 0 Comments

So Windows 10 Technical Preview and Server vNext have hit MSDN and Azure. In the Windows 10 unveiling video there was a lot of demo of new features in cmd, yes cmd, not PowerShell(?). As it turns out these are actually console host improvements and everything seen in the video applies to the PowerShell console too, easier copy paste, select text, word wrap on resize and transparency.
