In Response to: [Q] New Windows Terminal and console (Slobodan Vujnovic)

My Windows 10 just got upgraded to the minimum needed version:
C:\Temp>ver
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.267]

ZTree can be launched in as many tabs as you like, but there are many
rough edges:

1. There is blinking cursor after the time display in the top
right corner: 2019-08-15 21:10:12. In fact, it blinks even in F1 or F9.

2. Commands like Alt+F work, but the menu on the bottom does not reflect
the fact that you are holding Alt down. Same with the Ctrl+? commands.
For example, Ctrl+T will tag the files, but the menu displays the
default mode.

All in all, pretty unusable for serious work. I'm now just hitting Alt+7
and Alt+8 and playing with ZTree's geometry. It's working so-so.

There seems to be a lot of work for Kim to make ZTree compatible with WT.
But maybe this is a chance for more visibility, since WT is a dream come true
for admins (based on some reviews), who can have PowerShell, CMD, Linux
shells,... side by side in a single tabbed app.

Why not throw in the best Windows file manager from the beginning as the
default and win their hearts?

WT is open source, so it can be tweaked to support some of the specific
ZTree features (old or new) that were problematic in the current console.
