It is unlikely this will be fixed for Octave 7 and a work-around is available.
Setting release to "dev".

No more feedback in about a week. But assuming this is the same issue that came up a couple of times recently about the new Windows Terminal App. In that case, I can confirm the issue.

This would likely disappear for the new cross-platform command window widget that is currently still experimental.

For the time being, the work-around is to switch Windows to the "classic" Console Host. See comment #1.

ISTR a similar report.
Do you use the new Windows Terminal as the default console?
If you do, try setting it to the (older) Windows console host. See, e.g., the following blog post for where to find that setting:

Does that make a difference?

Installing Octave 7.1.0 from .exe after uninstalling a working Octave 6.4.0 results with following behavior when running the GUI shortcut.

- Both CLI and GUI open
- Anything types/displayed on either of CLI or GUI Command window is shown on both
- GUI crashes after a while (seen once) with CLI staying with error code
