To start a git bash terminal

To start two git bash terminals in two directories

> -cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju\dir1 "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/bash.exe -l -i

-cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju\dir2 "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/bash.exe -l -i

To start an ssh session

> -cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/ssh.exe username@server

To start an ssh session and go to a directory

> -cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/ssh.exe -t username@server "cd ~/dir1 && bash"

To name the tabs, add something like -cur_console:n:t:blah, -cur_console:n:t:“blah blah”. For example

> -cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/ssh.exe -t username@server "cd ~/dir1 && bash" -cur_console:n:t:"Tab name"

grouping windows for alt tab

tags | conemu alt tab, group tabs, club windows

If there are N conemu windows with M tabs in each (on average), the following setting will let you cycle through N icons instead of N*M icons.

Settings -> General -> Task bar -> Taskbar buttons -> Active console only (ConEmu window)

Sample use case 1:- I usually open a separate conemu window per “task” and multiple tabs within each window for a “subtask”.

Sample use case 2:- Say we are working on two machines (ex:- dev and uat). We can open two conemu windows for each of them. On each machine we can have three tabs pointing to three different directories, for example source code, input, and output. With the default settings, clicking on the conemu icon in the taskbar or alt+tab will show 6 conemu icons. But with the above setting, we will only see 2 icons.

REM You can either double click this file in file explorer or create a shortcut
REM to it on desktop and double click there.

REM start /B is like Linux's & (which backgrounds the jobs).
REM If you do not use it, then {task2} will be started only after all the
REM windows from {task1} are exited.

REM The launching shell remains open and has to be manually closed. Afterwards,
REM see if there is a way to close it automatically.

where task1, task2, task3 are the conemu tasks specified on the “Tasks” page of “Settings” dialog.

The task_notes.txt is a taskfile stored in the same directory as that of the batch script. It contains a list of tabs to be launched in a conemu window.

$ cat task_notes.txt
> -cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju\ideas "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/bash.exe -l -i -cur_console:n:t:"ideas"
> -cur_console:d:C:\Users\raju\thoughts "%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-cmd.exe" --no-cd --command=usr/bin/bash.exe -l -i -cur_console:n:t:"thoughts"
