    How to Hide or Show Profile from Dropdown in Windows Terminal app in Windows 10


    The Windows Terminal is a modern, fast, efficient, powerful, and productive terminal application for users of command-line tools and shells like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and WSL. Its main features include multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and custom themes, styles, and configurations.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 21337, Windows Terminal is now an inbox app.

    Windows Terminal will automatically create Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and PowerShell profiles for you if you have these shells installed on your machine.

    Profiles will automatically be added to the dropdown to select from in Windows Terminal.
