gnuplot: How to 'unset' set term x11


I am quite new to both linux and gnuplot. I have been using the command 'set term x11 0' in gnuplot in order to make plots in different windows. However I am unable to turn off this setting, how can this be done?

The main reason I want to turn off/unset this is because I want to get back to the main gnuplot window, as in this window you are able to restore previous zoom settings etc.

So far the only way I can remove this setting is by exiting gnuplot, but this is not practical.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Typically gnuplot will start up with the wxt terminal (it may report this on startup), and you can set it back to this:
set term wxt
