To run Cmder as any IntelliJ-based IDEs, you may follow these steps:

  1. Create a new cmder_shell.bat file in your Cmder installation directory, with the following contents:
@echo off
@cmd.exe /k %~dp0\vendor\init.bat
  1. In your IDE environment, press Ctrl + Alt + S and type terminal in the search box.
  2. In the Shell path, change cmd.exe to the following: [cmder_root]\cmder_shell.bat

Substitute [cmder_root] with your Cmder installation directory.
Tip: You can define an environment variable to use as [cmder_root].

  1. Press Alt + F12 to open the IDE's terminal with Cmder.
