The new Windows terminal is a step up from the old one but I find it silly that I have to edit json to make configuration change to a GUI application.
That was kind of a trendy thing there for a minute. Atom originally had no settings GUI, for example. And VS Code exposes all its settings as JSON even though most or all have a GUI as well these days. I never particularly liked it, especially since JSON is painful to edit by hand.
I think it started with Sublime Text. (And I think it’s terrible!)
There appears to be active work on a UI for Settings.
