Cmder is my shell of choice. download from github

Where to Install

ps I install in C:\sharedTools\cmder_mini and have this referenced in my Path.


The Nov 2017 release fixes issue that aliases don’t work without the legacy console enabled in Win10.

Update the file C:\sharedTools\cmder_mini\config\user-aliases.cmd

Here are my favourite aliases!

e=explorer .
p=git add . -A & git commit -m "auto commit" & git push
c=code .
cdd = cd c:\dev

Set Starup Directory


Split the Window

ps Very nice to split the screen

Only show 1 active window in the taskbar


Settings (Win Alt P)

Keyboard shortcuts

Shift Insert - pastes multi line
