In neovim, when use the command :term, it opens a new shell with bash. I want to use zsh by default.

zsh is already my default shell. I changed it with chsh.


Looking at :h :terminal it says

Execute {cmd} with 'shell' in a new terminal buffer

So use :set shell=/path/to/zsh. Put it in your vimrc file (probably init.vim) to make it "permanent".
