Terminals panel

The Terminals panel lists the terminals, whose main purpose is to launch programs with the parameters configured in shortcuts.

Shortcuts use a terminal emulation utility (called fgltty) to connect to the system hosting the runtime system. Each line of the list in the Terminals panel refers to an active instance of the utility.

Terminals are automatically started by the Shortcut System.

The terminal utility provided is called fgltty.


Coupled with GDC, its main purpose is to launch programs with the parameters which are set in shortcuts. You may use it as a strict terminal emulation utility, but we can not guarantee it will function well, and it won't be maintained for this purpose.

Show / Hide

This button allows you to show or hide the selected terminal. When you create a shortcut using the Shortcut Wizard, you can specify whether the Terminal Utility is shown. With this button you can show a hidden terminal, or hide a visible one.

This is typically used to check why your application has not started. Showing the Terminal Utility will display what has happened.

Close and Close All

This button allows you to close selected Terminal Utilities. Close All will close all running terminals.


This may interrupt running applications as the runtime system process may also be terminated.
