How to Reinstall Windows Terminal in Windows 11

Windows Terminal is a modern terminal application for users of command-line tools and shells like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). If you’ve uninstalled the Windows Terminal app in Windows 11 accidentally and need it back, you can reinstall the app using a couple of methods.

It’s also possible that you’ve intentionally uninstalled the Windows Terminal app in an attempt to remove the Windows Terminal context menu. You can remove the context menu entry alone and still have the Windows Terminal app intact.

Uninstalling the Windows Terminal app will make the Windows Terminal and Windows Terminal (Admin) options in the Win + X power user menu inoperable. Here is how to reinstall Windows Terminal.

Reinstall Windows Terminal in Windows 11

Method 1: Using PowerShell

  1. Launch PowerShell.exe as administrator.
  2. Run the following command and press Enter:
    get-appxpackage Microsoft.WindowsTerminal -allusers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  3. Close PowerShell.

The above command reinstalls the Windows Terminal app.

Method  2: Using Microsoft Store

  1. Launch the Microsoft Store app.
  2. Search for the phrase Windows Terminal and locate the appropriate (Microsoft) app.
  3. Click on the Get button to install the app.

This reinstalls Windows Terminal.
