In the newest version of Windows Terminal, the changes are done in the settings.json file. Just change USERNAME to yours for the "commandline" setting.

// Make changes here to the cmd.exe profile.

My username is bsand, so my commandline setting is

"cmd.exe /K C:\Users\bsand\anaconda3\Scripts\activate.bat"

However, the \b is highlighted, I think it is acting as an escape character. Do you have any suggestions?

Try instead
"commandline": "cmd.exe /K C:\\Users\bsand\\anaconda3\\Scripts\\activate.bat"
