#StackBounty: #macos #bash #shell #zsh Shell set to bash but running zsh

Bounty: 50

I tried out zsh, but decided to revert to bash because it’s what I’m used to. I’ve set my "Login shell" back to /bin/bash in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Advanced options and have run chsh -s /bin/bash. When I run echo $SHELL I get the expected "/bin/bash" output. However, the top of my terminal windows says " – ZSH – bash" and when I force an error, like searching for something that doesn’t exist, the message seems to indicate that it’s still running zsh:
zsh: no matches found: *test

I’ve tried to force it to be bash in every way I know how. What am I not thinking of? Any/all suggestions appreciated.
