Integrated terminal and flexible tab layout

Visual Studio now features an integrated terminal experience, with profiles available for Developer PowerShell, Developer Command Prompt, and any available WSL distros. The integrated terminal shares most of its core with the Windows Terminal, which results in a more robust terminal experience, and faster adoption of new functionality.
In addition to managing your document tabs on top of the code editor, you can now manage them in a vertical list on either the left or right side the editor.
