Teminal command not working

Hi, I am stocked on this same spot for 24hours now. Terminal command (ctrl ` )is not working on the visual studio code that I installed. Please I need an assistant. Thanks

You can also open a terminal window in the menu of VSCode
Terminal → New Terminal

Thanks for the reply… I did what you asked me to do and what I got was in the attached

Have I done something wrong?

I don’t see the terminal screen, but I can’t enlarge the screenshot so maybe I am wrong.

That is my point… Terminal screen is not coming up…

Now I can see the screenshot better.
The terminal screen is in the right bottom corner.

Thanks so much… that was so helpful
