To be able to open tabs would be great.
I am stuck using a MAC at work because the terminal is far superior. with Linux/MAC I can open multiple tabs in the terminal, with windows WSL I have to open a bunch of windows. Sometimes I will has 7 or 8 tabs open at once... Adding tabs to the command terminal would be an excellent upgrade. I work with a bunch of DevOps and TechOps people and the vast majority would rather be using windows, but because of the lack of features with the command box they are stuck using MAC's
Ubuntu terminal is so amazing because of this. Now we need the same in windows.

Agree with @Anonymous. I use tmux tabs, and navigate through them using CTRL+NUM and works better than any terminal emulator's. Mouse click also works, and tabs can be displayed explicitly. Furthermore using tmux removes dependencies on specific terminal emulators. Totally recommend trying a setup of tmux.

Some crazy people run some X servers (VcXsrv or Xming), then start Linux terminals directly on Windows:
C:\Windows\System32\bash.exe -c "(nohup env DISPLAY=:0 SHLVL=0 sakura &>/dev/null) & sleep .1"

Install SSH Service on WSL and then use ssh to login through putty type terminal.

Tabs can be opened in Gnome-Terminal (you can use a third party X server for now to run it) or similar programs (Gnome-Terminal is sometimes quirky, especially the initial configuration)
tabs, tabs management (memorize a set of tabs, with path etc, like with timeline), and window splits (like in VS) would be neat !!!
my 50 cents.. go *full in* and take your time to get used to "tmux".
This way your are the "multi-window" master on every bash on every remote access.
Leave Windows behind you, and go full shortcuts :)
My learning curve was, that conemu slowed down my bash experience, something which this project may improve over time, implementing the "wsl-bridge" better.
The terminal to run my WSL / Bash, which works for me is the https://github.com/goreliu/wsl-terminal. It is the one I found to be responsive + supports zoom in/out, which is key for me for presentation or switching from small laptop screen to external monitors.
Ever tried conemu? It supports WSL and much more.

You are able to use Hyper shell instead of the default Bash shell, that comes with the installation.
This shell allows you to have multiple tabs.
This is already an ask for this. Delete it and vote for that instead.
