About ConEmu

ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console emulator with tabs, which represents
multiple consoles as one customizable GUI window with various features.

Initially, the program was created as a companion to
Far Manager,
my favorite shell replacement - file and archive management,
command history and completion, powerful editor.

Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools
(like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to
suggestions. ConEmu mirror

ConEmu starts a console program in hidden console window and provides
an alternative customizable GUI window with various features:

  • smooth window resizing;
  • tabs and splits (panes);
  • easy run old DOS applications (games) in Windows 7 or 64bit OS (DosBox required);
  • quake-style, normal, maximized and full screen window graphic modes;
  • window font anti-aliasing: standard, clear type, disabled;
  • window fonts: family, height, width, bold, italic, etc.;
  • using normal/bold/italic fonts for different parts of console simultaneously;
  • cursor: standard console (horisontal) or GUI (vertical);
  • and more, and more...
  • tabs for editors, viewers, panels and consoles;
  • thumbnails and tiles;
  • show full output (1K+ lines) of last command in editor/viewer;
  • customizable right click behaviour (long click opens context menu);
  • drag and drop (explorer style);
  • and more, and more...

All settings are read from the registry or ConEmu.xml file, after which the
command line parameters
are applied. You may easily use several named configurations (for different PCs for example).


  • Windows 2000 or later.


If you are NOT a Far Manager user

  • Unpack all files (from appropriate ConEmuPack.\*.7z)
    or install ConEmuSetup.\*.exe package to any folder your choice.
    Subfolder plugins (Far Manager related) is not required in your case.
  • Run ConEmu.exe or ConEmu64.exe.

If you ARE a Far Manager user

  • Use of ConEmuPack.\*.7z and ConEmuSetup.\*.exe are slighly different
  • ConEmuPack.\*.7z: Unpack all files to the folder, containing far.exe
  • ConEmuSetup.\*.exe: On the Features page you must select destination
    for Far Manager plugins to the folder, containing far.exe.
  • Import to the registry Far Manager macroses, related to ConEmu. Macro *.reg
    files are located in ConEmu.Addons directory. Each macro file (*.reg) has
    description in header. Just doubleclick choosen files in Windows Explorer
    to import them.
  • By default (started without command line params), ConEmu runs far.exe from
    it's home folder, or cmd.exe if Far Manager not found.
    Alternatively, You may run any root command, specifying /Cmd \<App with params\>
    argument in ConEmu shortcut or command line.
