Mine is set to “Default login shell”. If you have “Command” selected and have filled in a path to a shell, that will override whatever your shell is set to. This could be useful if you wanted a different shell and didn’t want to or couldn’t set it by other means, but I think it’d be better to leave it set to not override the shell if possible.
