    Something here might help:

    Editing Windows Terminal JSON Settings

    You may change the default applications by file type by going to the Settings > Default apps > scroll down and go to "Choose default applications by file type" > look for .json and you may change it there by clicking the + Choose a default.

    Best regards,
