customizable command shell ColorConsole is an alternative to the standard Windows command shell (cmd.exe). It offers support for multiple tabs, customizable font and background colors, shortcuts for favorite commands and more. The program offers more than just simple color schemes, it actually enables you to format and color selected text portions similar to a word processor, and you can then export the formatted session to a HTML file or RTF document - great for educational purposes. You can also save frequently used commands for quick access, run Chdir by selecting the folders from an Explorer menu (instead of having to type the path) and also print a copy of your session. No installation required. Copyright

Another keeper from nenad hrg 5 stars by bolgwrad Apr 25, 2018 (Read all my 20 reviews)
Every time I have to use the Windows console I think, "If only I could copy and paste; if only I could import and export; if only I could choose funky colors with a click; if only Windows console weren't so BORING. Thanks to Nenad Hrg, who also wrote at least two other stable, full-featured little keeper utilities (Always MouseWheel and OneLoupe), Windows Console is now in the 21st century. The fun begins when you rename it to 'cmd.exe' and put it in the WindowsSystem32 directory. Doesn't quite work. show Review details
Loved it 5 stars by gimpguy Aug 02, 2012 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
I was highly impressed with ColorConsole. At first I felt this would be nothing more than a simple, well,... colored console. It's much more than that. Of course you can change the fonts, colors and such but you can export to html, run commands but you can input your own commands as well. This needs no install but will keep your settings. It's a souped up cmd console and one I'd rather use from here on. show Review details
Adds nice enhancements to the command prompt 5 stars by busybusy Nov 05, 2011 (Read all my 262 reviews)
I use the command prompt quite a bit and this utility just adds some nice enhancements. It runs without needing to be installed, it's small memory footprint won't be noticed and it works! Two-Thumbs Up! show Review details
