  • Your Windows build number: Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18885.1001]

  • What you're doing and what's happening: When I type start in a command prompt session in the Windows Terminal, the new command prompt window opens in a new conhost window.

  • What's wrong / what should be happening instead: The new command prompt should open in a new tab in the existing Terminal window.

This is by design.

We have plans to support setting another application as the "default terminal" on Windows, but those plans are still very rough and in the works.

This will require an OS feature. I'm updating the title to represent the default terminal OS change.

I'm renaming this to add the [defterm] keyword to the end so that we can find it easily in searches. The words "default" and, well, "terminal" come up alarmingly often in this repository. 😄
