Cmder v1.3.11

Cmder is a software package created out of pure frustration over absence of usable console emulator on Windows. It is based on ConEmu with major config overhaul, comes with a Monokai color scheme, amazing clink (further enhanced by clink-completions) and a custom prompt layout.

Why use it

The main advantage of Cmder is portability. It is designed to be totally self-contained with no external dependencies, which makes it great for USB Sticks or cloud storage. So you can carry your console, aliases and binaries (like wget, curl and git) with you anywhere.

The Cmder's user interface is also designed to be more eye pleasing, and you can compare the main differences between Cmder and ConEmu here.

Single User Portable Config

Download the latest release
Extract the archive. Note: This path should not be C:\Program Files or anywhere else that would require Administrator access for modifying configuration files
(optional) Place your own executable files into the %cmder_root%\bin folder to be injected into your PATH.
Run Cmder.exe

Shared Cmder install with Non-Portable Individual User Config

Download the latest release
Extract the archive to a shared location.
(optional) Place your own executable files into the %cmder_root%\bin folder to be injected into your PATH.
(optional) Create %userprofile%\cmder_config\bin folder to be injected into individual users PATH. Default is to auto create this on first run.
(optional) Place your own executable files into the %userprofile%\cmder_config\bin folder to be injected into your PATH.
Run Cmder.exe with /C command line argument. Example: cmder.exe /C %userprofile%\cmder_config

This will create the following directory structure if it is missing.


Both the shared install and the individual user config locations can contain a full set of init and profile.d scripts enabling shared config with user overrides. See below.

Cmder.exe Command Line Arguments
Argument Description
/C [user_root_path] Individual user Cmder root folder. Example: %userprofile%\cmder_config
/M Use conemu-%computername%.xml for ConEmu settings storage instead of user_conemu.xml
/REGISTER [ALL, USER] Register a Windows Shell Menu shortcut.
/UNREGISTER [ALL, USER] Un-register a Windows Shell Menu shortcut.
/SINGLE Start Cmder in single mode.
/START [start_path] Folder path to start in.
/TASK [task_name] Task to start after launch.
/X [ConEmu extras pars] Forwards parameters to ConEmu

Context Menu Integration
