This solution uses Cmder which is a packaged version of ConEmu with additional enhancements.
The following command opens three different tabs split into 3 panes, with different colored tabs and different working directories set.
start "Three Tabs" ConEmu /cmdlist ^> cmd /k "%ConEmuDir%\..\init.bat & color 4C & cd C:\Temp" -cur_console:n:t:"Tab 1" ^|^|^| cmd /k "%ConEmuDir%\..\init.bat & color 5D & cd c:\" -cur_console:s1T60Hn:t:"Tab2" ^|^|^| cmd /k "%ConEmuDir%\..\init.bat & cd C:\Projects" -cur_console:s2T50Vn:t:"Tab 3"
- The script must be run from Cmder, it will open a ConEmu session
%ConEmuDir%\..\init.bat initializes the Cmder shell
color 4C will set the background and foreground colors
cd C:\Temp sets the working directory per tab
Color attributes are specified by TWO hex digits -- the first
corresponds to the background; the second the foreground. Each digit
can be any of the following values:
0 = Black 8 = Gray
1 = Blue 9 = Light Blue
2 = Green A = Light Green
3 = Aqua B = Light Aqua
4 = Red C = Light Red
5 = Purple D = Light Purple
6 = Yellow E = Light Yellow
7 = White F = Bright White
