With Windows 11 now using Terminal to show CMD, or Powershell, or Windows Subsytem for Linux, or what-have-you... Is there a way to open a new CMD window, in a new window? Not just as a new tab in an existing Terminal window?

I'm pretty sure the Terminal will just respect your "windowingBehavior" setting. If you've got it set to useAnyExisting or useExisting, then starting cmd.exe should just open as a tab in the current window. Change that to useNew and it'll use a new window instead.
