How to change the default shell in local terminal?

The local terminal option is available in Termius for the desktop and Android. Choosing a different default shell is possible in the desktop Termius app only. On Android, sh is the only supported shell.

To change the default shell in the desktop app:

  1. In Preferences, open the Terminal page.
  2. Scroll down and in the Local terminal path section type in the location of the shell
    you want to use or choose a predefined value, e.g. PowerShell, WSL, Bash, Cygwin, zsh.

Note: The Local terminal path field does not support any additional options (arguments), which could otherwise be used for starting the shell.

    On Windows you can determine the full path by issuing:

    (get-command PowerShell.exe).Path(get-command Pwsh.exe).Path

    Then you can edit your local Terminal, if, for example, you want to user PowerShell 7 as the default interpreter.
