Replace startup tasks instead of creating new ones?

Answered

I configured several startup tasks. When I restart the IDE, the "old" startup tasks are still available in the terminal view and new startup tasks are created. Is there a way to replace the tasks instead of creating new ones? Currently I have to manually close all previous tasks to avoid getting a mess after a few days.

Any ideas?

Ah, I see. You can add terminal.persistent.tabs=false in Help | Edit Custom Properties. That would disable the restoring of terminal tabs on a project reopening. 

Side note: you can create PHP Script configurations instead:

That way there won't be any terminal windows opened, just "Run" windows.

Nice. The terminal.persistent.tabs=false property works perfect for me...Thank you very much for your help!

Can't reproduce this here. Could you please check that on 2022.2 EAP build?

What startup tasks exactly do you have?

I am using the current stable version 2022.1.2 and I have created some shell scripts (shell text) where I execute Laravel commands for e.g. (php artisan serve).

So, what exactly do you mean by "replace"?

Say you have a list of startup tasks at File | Settings | Tools | Startup Tasks. You can add, remove & edit run configurations there. Can't you simply remove unneeded configurations & add new ones?

No I am talking about the terminal view (Alt F12). Each of the startup tasks creates a new terminal instance. But when I restart the IDE, the old terminals will stay and new ones will be created every time...so I have to close all "old" terminal instances manually. So my question is if there is a possibility that the open terminal instance will be replaced or is there a way to close all open terminal instances on exit for e.g.?
