I use the new, open source Windows Terminal and it's really a much nicer way of working as the old legacy console. Still, I cannot pause the output of a running program. The old console supports Ctrl-S/Ctrl-Q to stop/resume output, or I can mark something with the mouse. Both pause the output and even the running program. Also, Scroll-Lock has no effect.

Is there anything like this for Windows Terminal?


Unfortunately Windows Terminal does not have an option that allows you to pause output. An issue was filed for this feature about two years ago but it has only been partially implemented - Scrolling now freezes on select, but the output still continues.
