Apps Change Windows Terminal Language in Windows 11

  • Staff

Windows Terminal 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.

Windows Terminal uses the system default language by default, but you can select a preferred language to use in Windows Terminal instead.
