ConEmu – Customizable Windows Terminal

ConEmu aims to be handy, comprehensive, fast and reliable terminal window where you may host any console application developed either for WinAPI (cmd, powershell, far) or Unix PTY (cygwin, msys, wsl bash).

ConEmu is not a shell, so it does not provide “shell features” like remote access, tab-completion, command history and others. ConEmu is an advanced console window where you can run any shell of your choice.
