enter image description hereRecently set up Git for windows and Cmder on a fresh Win 10 install. All the other Unix and git bash commands all work fine. I just can't see what branch I'm on that normally displays after the path. Environmental variables are all default as per installs of the two aforementioned softwares.

I'm guessing I may have to tweak tasks commands in Cmder settings but not sure what to. Any suggestions?

Current system env paths related are:

C:\Program Files\cmder\vendor\conemu-maximus5\ConEmu\Scripts;

C:\Program Files\cmder\vendor\conemu-maximus5;

C:\Program Files\cmder\vendor\conemu-maximus5\ConEmu;

C:\Program Files\nodejs\;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd;

C:\Program Files\Git\mingw64\bin;

C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin;

  • I suggest you to post screenshot demonstrating the problem

Due to your cropped screenshot I think you are using ConEmu, but not a cmder. At least, you are using "native" ConEmu task! To enable git information there you have to add /git switch after CmdInit.cmd in task contents.

One may read more about Tasks in documentation. That's what docs were written for.

  • Awesome, thanks. For further understanding of these tasks and how they are used/allocated in the session, do you have a link to explain this and the differences between ConEmu and cmder? Sep 3, 2016 at 10:11
  • cmder is a software bundle. That's the difference.
