Press Ctrl+Shift+W to force the window to close. This replaces the ancient Alt+F4. Why Microsoft changed a forced-close to Ctrl+Shift+W while they kept the fullscreen keyboard shortcut as Function+F11 is a mystery. I’m guessing that locked-up Windows Terminals happen so often that the Microsoft programmer in charge of it decided to give it an easy-to-press keyboard shortcut.
