How to Add and Remove Profiles in Windows Terminal app in Windows 10

The Windows Terminal is a modern, fast, efficient, powerful, and productive terminal application for users of command-line tools and shells like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and WSL. Its main features include multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and custom themes, styles, and configurations.

Any application that has a command line interface can be run inside Windows Terminal. This includes everything from PowerShell and Command Prompt to Azure Cloud Shell and any WSL distribution such as Ubuntu or Oh-My-Zsh.

Starting with Windows 10 build 21337, Windows Terminal is now an inbox app.

Windows Terminal will automatically create Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and PowerShell profiles for you if you have these shells installed on your machine. This makes it easier for you to have all of your shells included in the terminal without having to locate their executable files.

Regardless of whether a new shell is installed before or after the Windows Terminal app installation, the terminal will create a new profile for the newly installed shell.

If you like, you can add your own new custom profiles to run any application or shell from within Windows Terminal.

This tutorial will show you how to add and remove custom profiles in the Windows Terminal app for your account in Windows 10.
