I do a lot of easy coding with batch files. So you can imagine that I could have sometimes several cmd windows open here and there … what a mess.

Cmder solved my problem.

I just used the cmder-mini. To replace the cmd with the cmder :

  • Open cmder.exe
  • Win+Alt+P to open the settings
  • go in Integration / Default term
  • Check [x] Force ConEmu as default terminal for console applications
  • Check [x] Register on OS startup
  • Save settings


Integration with FreeCommander

If you use FreeCommander (an expolorer much better that the one from Windows), you know that you can open a cmd terminal where your explorer is by pressing Ctrl+D. In order to use Cmder as well with this:

  • Go in Settings / View / DOS Prompt
  • Modify DOS box command specification : <path-of-your-Cmder.exe> /single /x "/cmd cmd" %ActivDir%
    • Single permit to open a new tab and to have only one instance

Batch files

Create a reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="\"C:\\Users\\doria\\scoop\\apps\\cmder\\current\\Cmder.exe" /single /x \"/cmd %1\""
