This is a little nicer than the default windows cmd shell.


Download the executable and install. Note that there are 32 and 64 bit builds, each of which will align themselves with the appropriate directories (i.e. Program Files || Program Files (x86)) on 64 bit windows.

Shell Environment

When we're ros'ing we often want to load up an environment script with the shell, usually setup.bat at the root of your installed ros stacks.

  • Edit->Settings->Tabs

  • Create a new tab called win_ros with Shell:

cmd /k C:\work\src\setup.bat

Or wherever your setup script is.

  • Create a shortcut on your desktop with target: Console.exe -t win_ros
