In ConEmu's "Create new console" menu, is there a way of deleting items from the list of previously run commands?

  1. Open a Create new console dialog (WinShiftw hotkey can be changed in Settings > Keys)
  2. Right-click on the Create new console dialog caption or hit AltSpace.
  3. Menu item > Reset command history...

Alternatively, you may edit history manually in registry (HKCU\Software\ConEmu\«ConfigName»\CmdLineHistory) or in ConEmu.xml, whatever you use.

PS. wow, new tag

Alt-Space may be not working for system menu. There is an option to send this combo to console. Alternatively - Win-Alt-Space must works. – Maximus Jun 14 '12 at 6:15
One more thing - there is key combo for this Create new console dialog ) – Maximus Jun 14 '12 at 6:22
Duly noted, thanks. – Charles Roper Jun 14 '12 at 14:20
Sorry for deludion this morning ) Win+Alt+Space - hotkey for ConEmu system menu. In the dialog - Alt+Space of course. Win+Shift+Space is preferred for opening dialog, because "Create confirmation" option may be Off. Even this option is Off, you can still open dialog from System Menu > New Console with Shift key depressed. – Maximus Jun 14 '12 at 18:39
