About ConEmu

ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console emulator with tabs, which represents multiple consoles as one customizable GUI window with various features.

Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement - file and archive management, command history and completion, powerful editor.

Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools (like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions.

Description

ConEmu starts a console program in hidden console window and provides an alternative customizable GUI window with various features:

  • smooth window resizing;
  • tabs and splits (panes);
  • easy run old DOS applications (games) in Windows 7 or 64bit OS (DosBox required);
  • quake-style, normal, maximized and full screen window graphic modes;
  • window font anti-aliasing: standard, clear type, disabled;
  • window fonts: family, height, width, bold, italic, etc.;
  • using normal/bold/italic fonts for different parts of console simultaneously;
  • cursor: standard console (horizontal) or GUI (vertical);
  • and more, and more...

Far Manager related features

  • tabs for editors, viewers, panels and consoles;
  • thumbnails and tiles;
  • show full output (1K+ lines) of last command in editor/viewer;
  • customizable right click behaviour (long click opens context menu);
  • drag and drop (explorer style);
  • and more, and more...

All settings are read from the registry or ConEmu.xml file, after which the command line parameters are applied. You may easily use several named configurations (for different PCs for example).

Requirements

  • Windows 2000 or later.

Installation

In general, ConEmu installation is easy. Just unpack or install to any folder and run ConEmu.exe.
