Just noticed that bug #63430 is a duplicate of the older bug #62791.

this is known new win11 behavior from the new command terminal widget. we haven't yet figured out how to work with that terminal, but you can change back to the same one as win10:  the workaround is linked here::

additional note: In this Octave installation (Win11) the user also was not able to scroll upwards inside the "command window" area of the Octave GUI.

This is a bug that I have been shown:

  • Use Windows 11 as OS
  • Install Octave 8.1.0 locally (i.e. do the installation NOT as administrator), presumably using the official windows exe installer.
  • Double click onto the "Octave 8.1. (local) GUI" icon on the desktop to start Octave
  • Result: Octave GUI opens, AND an Octave CLI window also opens alongside. If you close the Octave CLI window, this will automatically also close the Octave GUI window. (Calculations inside Octave CLI, as well as inside Octave GUI seem to work fine.)

I have seen the behavior with my own eyes on someone elses computer, but I cannot reproduce it because I do not have a PC with Win 11 operating system.

This behavior made a bad first impression on this first time Octave user. I am not sure if this is already a known strange behavior, but I have not found an open bug report on Savannah that sounded similar.

Does anyone else see this behavior?
