    Windows Terminal settings.json - start w/ two panes top, one bottom


    Windows Version: 10.0.019042.928
    Windows Terminal Version: 1.6.10571.0


    I would like for Windows Terminal to start with two panes on top, and one on the bottom. I can produce this behavior AFTER startup by launching Windows Terminal like this:

    wt sp -H

    Then, once loaded, click in the upper pane and use your assigned shortcut key for a vertical split. Perfect!

    However, when trying to replicate this behavior using the startupActions option, I have trouble. I can create two panes on the bottom and one on the top like this:

    "startupActions": "sp -H `; sp",

    That's pretty close. I noticed that there's a "focus tab" option, so I tried focusing the first tab before splitting, like this:

    "startupActions": "sp -H `; ft -t 0 `; sp",

    However, that has no effect on the layout. I must be missing something simple. Can anyone help me achieve my desired layout at startup without requiring me to manually create the additional tab every time?

    I did eventually solve this issue. The key is the "move-focus" command. My ending command looking something like this:

    "startupActions": "sp -H `; move-focus up `; sp ;' move-focus left",

    The final "move-focus left" just places focus on the upper left pane and isn't required to achieve the layout.
