Microsoft has declared that the Windows Terminal app will be the default command line on Windows 11 PCs during 2022. Other third-party terminals will also have full functionality and users will be able to set them as default more easily. The intended change will begin with Windows Insiders, who, along with other users, can test the Windows Terminal app and provide feedback to Microsoft.

Microsoft has announced that the Windows Terminal app will be the default command line experience on Windows. Windows Console Host, conhost.exe, has been the default since the conception of Windows. Thus, Command Prompt and PowerShell utilised the Windows Console Host.

This is about to change as Kayla Cinnamon, a program manager for the Windows Terminal app, declared in a blog post that Microsoft intends to set Windows Terminal as the default command line on Windows 11 systems during 2022.

Windows Terminal is an open-source project and features multiple tabs, custom themes, configurations, Unicode and UTF-8 character support and a GPU accelerated text rendering engine.

Moreover, Microsoft will be making the task of changing the console host less cumbersome and is even enabling other third-party terminals to have full functionality and be used as the default. Developers can certainly appreciate the robust features that Windows Terminal offers and they can make the app the default on Windows 11 in the Developer settings page as well as in the Windows Terminal settings.

Cinnamon stated that the default change will commence with the Windows Insider Program and then eventually reach all Windows 11 users. Users can send their feedback and help Microsoft to improve the app on the GitHub page.
