Console - Windows Console Enhancement

Introduction to Console

Console is a Windows console window enhancement. It was inspired by eConsole (

Console features include:

  • multiple tabs
  • text editor-like text selection
  • different background types (solid color, image, fake transparency)
  • alpha and color-key transparency
  • configurable font
  • different window styles

NOTE: 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.

Console is hosted on Sourceforge. Get the latest news and updates there.
