How to Start Windows Terminal at Windows 11 Startup

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Windows that debuted late last year, the new terminal, was said to have finally launched a more modern terminal environment, including features like tabs, split panels, various session types and settings that let you configure everything from keyboard shortcuts to animated GIF backgrounds.

So, if you want to go straight to the command line via PowerShell, Command Prompt or even via the Linux shell, you can easily make Windows Terminal start at Windows 11 (and Windows 10) startup. See now how to do it:

> First, if you’re running Windows 10 and you don’t have Windows Terminal installed yet, it’s available for free from the Microsoft Store. Just click “Get” and then “Install” on the Windows Terminal store page and it will be installed in a few moments.


> Then start Windows Terminal. On Windows 10 or 11, search for “terminal” in the Start menu, and select the Windows Terminal application icon in the results. If you are on Windows 11, you can also right-click the Start button and select “Windows Terminal” from the menu that appears. Left-click on the Start menu and select “Windows Terminal”.

When Windows Terminal opens, click the down arrow next to the plus sign (“+”) in the tab bar. From the menu that appears, choose “Settings”. Click the caret down on the tab bar and select “Settings.”


> On the Settings tab, choose “Startup” in the sidebar. On the boot settings page, change the button next to “Start at machine startup” until it is “On”. In the Windows Terminal settings, click “Startup” in the sidebar and activate “Start at machine startup”. After that, close the Settings tab. The next time you restart your PC and log in, Windows Terminal will start after a few moments in the default command line of your choice.

Happy hacking!
