I don't want ConEmu to attach to every cmd I open, but this is how it works now. I remember that I told ConEmu to do this, but I don't want it anymore. Maybe I just overlooked something, but I've read all the settings pages and I couldn't find an option to disable it. Am I missing something?

How do I prevent ConEmu from attaching every single cmd.exe I open?

My ConEmu version is 121109 x86, on winXPproSp3x86.

Settings -> Startup -> ComSpec

Press "Unregister" button.

I was overlooking it after all! Thank you very much! – n611x007 Nov 15 '12 at 0:11

I came here looking for an answer to why doing:

Start-Process powershell.exe '.\MyScript.ps1'

within PowerShell in a ConEmu would launch it in a new ConEmu tab rather than cmd.exe (ComSpec).

To stop ConEmu from doing this, within Settings → Features, under "In-console options", untick "Inject ConEmuHk".
