I also just noticed (was noseying around the code) that using the IDE's
Ctrl+Atl+T for "Tools/Open a Terminal" does not pay attention to this
setting too. It uses Desktop.class to pick/guess the temrinal.

Possibly would be a good idea to tie all terminal opening operations to the
one convienient list/setting.

I was just playing around with putting a TextBox next to the combo chooser
and a last combo list for $aTerminal that was "Custom" setting Custom made
the hidden Textbox visible and the terminal command i entered saved and
That's when i tried testing it using my geminal app to find the Open a
Terminal menu didn't even use it lol.

Definitely think opening that option up to a possible custom setting would
save you ever having to add any more as the user could do it themselves :)

All the best.
