Hello, I upgraded to 23H2 and when I open cmd.exe, the new powershell-like tabbed container opens instead the simple console window. It complicates launching of some console-based applications by interfering with keyboards commands and ignoring individual window/font sizes. Is there a chance how can step back to the old simple container or is the container upgrade irreversible? I also have installed PowerShell 7.4.1, not knowing if it affects the container change.

If you prefer going back to Console Host ("CMD")...

That helped, thank you. Could it default to Windows Terminal except of list of blacklisted applications?

Technically, there's a "Let Windows decide" option but I have no idea how that's supposed to work. In general, I would say it's all or nothing.
