Is there a way to get icons on the tabs in conemu? I would like the tab to have a PowerShell icon for my PowerShell tab for example. I have got it to work for the taskbar/jump list by specifying a task parameter, but I haven't figured out how to get icon on the tabs.

Tab icons are available from the box for most of shells (if shell executable has icon in its resource).

If your shell does not have icon, or you want to use custom icon, look below for examples:

  • use /icon "C:\cygwin\Cygwin.ico" in your task parameters
  • use -new_console:C:"C:\cygwin\Cygwin.ico" in the shell arguments

This would be a great feature. – Justin Dearing Jun 19 '13 at 17:01
Maybe @Maximus could know :) Task parameter /icon "C:\cygwin64\Cygwin.ico" doesn't work for me. I have to use command parameter -cur_console:C:"C:\cygwin64\Cygwin.ico". I'm using ConEmu 140416 64 bit. – Dawid Ferenczy May 15 '14 at 12:20
"/icon ..." is working on my side. You know how to report bugs... – Maximus May 15 '14 at 12:38
@Maximus That link is stale – hofnarwillie Feb 18 at 16:02

Yes, in the Settings menu, specify the following in the Task parameters:

/icon "C:\PathToYour\TaskIcon.ico"

ConEmu Settings

This does not work for me (ConEmu 140416 64bit). Should it work? I have to use -cur_console:C:"C:\cygwin64\Cygwin.ico" as command parameter instead. Task parameter /icon "C:\cygwin64\Cygwin.ico" does nothing. – Dawid Ferenczy May 14 '14 at 13:39
The Task parameters value of /icon "C:\cygwin\Cygwin.ico" works for me, although the "Run as Administrator" shield is overlayed above it to the point where it's difficult to see. – JackAce May 14 '14 at 18:49
You can create a bug report on ConEmu's Google Code project page. – Dawid Ferenczy May 15 '14 at 12:22
