That depends on whether you open ZTreeWin using the classic console (conhost) or the new Windows Terminal (WindowsTerminal/OpenConsole).

If you see a tab in the top bar of the window, then ZTreeWin is running inside a Windows Terminal window.

To prevent this from happening, add %SystemRoot%\System32\conhost.exe before the ZTreeWin command line. That way, ZTreeWin will run in a classic console window, which has the Edit menu option you expect.
