I've installed Miniconda but it only runs when I type:
source /opt/miniconda3/bin/activate 

so I have to type that in every time before using it. Is there a way to make Miniconda run as soon as I open the terminal?

The answer is yes, but the exact way to do this depends on what shell you are using. For bash you can put that command in your ~/.profile file. Miniconda will do that for you if you answer the question when you ran it. It also provides instructions for different shells at the end as I recall.

Thank you for your reply! I'm a complete beginner at the Linux terminal and Miniconda. Do you know the steps on how I would do that? I believe I am using bash as I've used that when installing Miniconda.

From an activated terminal:

conda init
conda config --set auto_activate_base True

.. will achieve what you want.

Cheers!

Thank you so much everyone for your help! Miniconda is now running immediately when I open the terminal :D

One more thing, if I ever were to remove this as the default when I open the terminal and go back to how the terminal was before, how would I do that?
