Returning the old terminal after Windows 11 update KB5019509

Got the update for Windows today – KB5019509 and the terminal’s arm was torn off. That is, it stopped displaying console programs like my Roguelike game. The update that broke it, adds tabs to the console, while breaking everything else… well, not the point (by the way, to see the latest Windows updates, type wmic qfe list into cmd).

To fix it:

Click on the header of the terminal window -> Properties

In Default Terminal Application put Windows Console Host

Restart the console and hallelujah! We got our oldschool console back. Old Billy’s nose lost the game again ;P
