Can't type into Android Studio's built in terminal


Don’t know since when, but I was off work for a few days, and now Android Studio is wont to not let me type into the built in terminal.

I use Android Studio on my HP laptop with Windows 10 on top of it.

Here’s a screenshot, as I click on it the cursor gets highlighted and starts blinking as usual but typing into it doesn’t work anymore.

Android Studio terminal

Well I have tried

  • adding terminals,
  • removing Terminals,
  • deleting AS data, and
  • even reinstalling AS completely

If anyone has got a solution, please assist.


This is an issue on Windows 10. To fix it, open a command prompt window (cmd.exe), then right click the title, and open Properties. Check Use legacy console, and it should go back to working (might need to restart Android Studio).
