    Windows Terminal
    I recently upgraded to Catalina version 10.15.4. Now I have a new icon in my dock for "terminal" From the internet search I've done this appears to be a Windows developer tool. I don't write code nor would I ever consider myself a developer Can I delete this? If so how do I delete it. Right click on the icon gives me an option to "quit" or I can "show in finder" but I don't think either option deletes the program. Thanks. CJ5

    Terminal is integral to macOS, so you can not delete the app. You can Quit the app, then remove it from the dock.
    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
    PS: When there is an accident or error, is the tool to blame or is the fool to blame?

    It is not a Windows tool or a developer tool.
    It is the Mac version of a common unix tool. It is for people who want to use unix-style commands on their computer. It's part of what makes MacOS uniquely powerful. Many programs are just a graphical interface to commands available in the Terminal.
