"-single" ignored when calling a defined task from registered "ConEmu Here" #1046
ConEmu build: 161206 
While -icon specified in "Startup/Tasks/Task parameters" is honored, -single is ignored when calling task from registered "ConEmu Here" context menu entry.
Steps to reproduce
While the console tab icon is indeed what you specified with the -icon option, each time the menu is clicked a new ConEmu window is opened.
I' expect that like -icon also -single is honored if specified in "Startup/Tasks/Task parameters" when calling the task from a registered "ConEmu Here" context menu item
And here it is the related task:
The -icon is accepted, that is i obtain cmd.exe consoles with their default icon overlaid with powershell icon, but -single is ignored, already opened ConEmu windows are never reused and for each new console it is opened a new window.
Had to fiddle with it for a while to figure out what was going on. I got it to work but I may have a different version but worth a shot
Settings > Integration >> ComSpec > At the bottom, register the reg setting with
Then I closed all ConEmu windows/processes
Then opened a fresh conemu session and back into: Settings > Integration > ConEmu Here > Command: change it to
Then I closed all ConEmu windows processes again and went back into the settings to see if it kept my settings. Because it kept adding /nosingle even though I took it away, I think because I had the "Force" check box checked on step 1.
Also dunno if this will help, it mentioned you could use -reuse -run if you hover over the command text box for
Many thanks for your efforts in trying to help me.
So the question i have is, why do i have to to put -single in the registered command, while instructions say the right place to put it is "Startup/Tasks/Task parameters"? Why only -single is ignored from there while for instance -icon is honored?
