Software Product Description

Console is a Windows console window enhancement. Console features include: multiple tabs, text editor-like text selection, different background types, alpha and color-key transparency, configurable font, different window styles.

Console is NOT a shell. Therefore, it does not implement shell features like command-line completion, syntax coloring, command history, etc.

Console is simply a nice-looking front end for a shell of your choice (cmd.exe, 4NT, bash, etc.) Other command-line utilities can also be used as 'shells' by Console.

What's New in version 2.00 Build 147 Beta:

  • fixed keyboard switching for Vista/Win7
  • fixed visible scrollbars on startup with 'Show scrollbars' option turned off
  • added support for flat scrollbars
  • added icons in the File->New Tab menu (thanks to chrisz for the patch)
  • added an option for using a default program icon in the tab menu
  • fixed exit codes
  • new inject code (many thanks to Jason Hood, creator of AnsiCon for the code) The new injection code enables running 32-bit shells from 64-bit Console, starting .NET console applications (e.g. powershell) directly, it doesn't use CreateRemoteThread, so Windows patches and antivirus software that disables the call should not cause problems. The code still hasn't been tested with Vista/Win7 UAC, but it does work for shell processes started as another user, so we'll have that feature in Console soon as well.
  • tabs can now be opened as a different user
  • expanded 'trim tab titles' options - you can now show characters at the end of the string
  • improved command text resolution for tab titles
  • fixed invalid window position after Windows unlock (BR#2912069)
