Can't set Windows Terminal as default because it is not detected in the list of terminals.

I am running Windows 11 stable version on my Lenovo S340 since upgrading from Windows 10.

I looked in the settings of Windows Terminal to set it as the default application, but the list of terminal apps only contains Windows Console Host. The same is the case in the Terminal Settings section in the stock settings app. Typing cmd into run still opens the old Command Prompt window of its own.

I tried reinstalling Windows Terminal but to no avail.

Did you observed the same behavior in the Windows 10 too?

I think it was not possible to set Windows Terminal as default in the stable version of Windows 10, but I never tried it anyway.
