Editors' Review

+

This free program offers more extensive functionalities than the ordinary Windows command console, and adds a bit of pizzazz in the process.

Console looks similar to the old DOS-command environment, but it is enhanced with a modern Windows interface with file menus and buttons. Among its features, you can easily customize the background color, window size, font type and size, and startup directory--normally you would have to type commands just to be able to do so. Also, the application allows you to copy and paste a whole directory address. Console lets you open multiple command consoles in tabs instead of opening several command console windows, a helpful feature to reduce desktop clutter.

The program is self-executable, so it doesn't need any installation. Intermediate and advanced users who frequently work in the DOS environment will find the additional features useful.

"Words as stated."

April 05, 2010  |  By l8rgator

 |  Version: Console 2 beta

Pros

Easier to copy and paste.

Cons

Doesn't maximize to full screen size. No left & right scrollbar. When you drag to resize, words disappear.

Summary

Doesn't really improve the cmd prompt - mostly just adds on easy copy and paste as well as colors.

"Top of the line."

 |  Version: Console 2 beta

Pros

If your a command line user then this is a must have! I've been using it since it started out. Marko has done a terrific job with this tool and to be honest, it's worth $, but it's free.
