Microsoft just unveiled the future of the command prompt

New, 60 comments

Surely the crowd-pleaser at today's event, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore unveiled Windows 10's biggest improvement yet: the command prompt. Your mom is probably very excited to hear about it. Power users will now be able to use CTRL+V to paste in directories, which is actually a welcome change. Copy and paste is important. (Especially for those of us who've been able to do this in command prompts for years on other OSes). But don't worry, it still looks exactly as you'd expect it to look. It's also probably not touch-enabled. Sorry.
