Windows TerminalÂ is a modern host application for the command-line shells you already love, like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and bash (via Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)). Its main features include multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and the ability to create your own themes and customize text, colors, backgrounds, and shortcuts.
Launch modeÂ defines whether the terminal will launch as maximized, full screen, focus, or maximized focus. Setting this to focus is equivalent to launching the terminal in the default mode, but withÂ focus modeÂ enabled. Similarly, setting this to maximized focus will result in launching the terminal in a maximized window with focus mode enabled.
This tutorial will show you how to change Windows Terminal launch mode for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
