Yesterday I have upgraded to win 11 - OS Build 22000.184 , but i have noticed that the new Windows Terminal wont open. the start menu stays unaffected when i click to open it.
I have tried to open through Run, cmd, etc... but nothing is happening.

google didn't yield much.

thanks in advance

If any one else wonders,
apparently you used to get it with windows 11 but now it needs to be downloaded from Microsoft store.

Hi,
Even after installing Windows Terminal, opening the app through the start options (win+x menu) does not achieve anything. It shows me a loading cursor for 2-3 seconds but no output. at least windows search has started working, which is something. but i would really like to fix this as i often use the start options. so, if you fixed your issue, can you please tell me how you did it?

I never use win X as I have a shortcut to it, but try the trouble shooters, a Repair Install, sfc and DISM to repair or get the latest version from the GitHub

Had a question about repair install - will I lose any app? I got really sick of resetting and reinstalling my apps
