  • Then, paste this code in the ‘Profiles’ block in the JSON file that we mentioned earlier.
  • Now create a Custom GUID For your command line.
  • Then create a new GUID for your application here.
  • Next, you will have to copy that newly created GUID in the code snippet that has been given above.
  • Now make some nominal changes like the App name and Icon customization in the code snippet.
  • Then enter the path for the executable file of the new command line in the ‘command line’ element of the code block that you copied from above in the given JSON File and then save the file.
  • Then relaunch the Windows terminal to find the newly added command line all set to launch from the arrow key.
