PromptPal is a replacement GUI (graphical user interface) for the command prompt and Powershell console.

The difference is that with PromptPal you get to compose your commands and view the results in a modern and helpful Windows program.
A Terminal Emulator, also called as a term, is a program that mimics the functions of a computer video terminal within another display device. It is mostly used as a terminal window to access command-line interfaces and text user interface.
Did you know that before laptops with 4K-ready LCD screens and monitors with HDR capability entered the market, the first ever computer relied on cathode ray tubes as a display device? The Z3, invented in 1941 by the German engineer Konrad Zuse, was the world's first working programmable and fully automatic digital computer and it displayed the results of its calculations using electronically illuminated cathode ray tubes. Built in Berlin during the peak of World War II, Germany's resources were spent on weapons so the Z3's development was hampered and many of its capabilities were limited. It was even destroyed in December 1943, when the Allies rained bombs on Berlin.
But on the other side of the channel, Great Britain supported the invention of the programmable computer that can help decode stolen high-level German messages. Telephone engineer Tommy Flowers led a group of codebreakers in creating Colossus, an electronic computer that uses vacuum tubes to perform Boolean and counting operations. The second edition of Colossus, invented just before D-Day, was greatly influential for the Allies in formulating the plan on what to do after breaching German lines in Central Europe. But Germany learned of the importance of the computer and helped Zuse's company, Zuse KG, replicate the machine in 1960. The replica was donated to the Deutsches Museum in Munich, where it is still on display today.
