I run this command in cmd:

console2 -t MyTab -r ipconfig

Should this command auto run ipconfig after console opens MyTab? It doesn't for me. It doesn't even without -t option.

The filename of the shell and its parameters need to be specified explicitly, like CMD.exe /K (or %COMSPEC% /K), in either

Console Settings -> Console -> Shell
Console Settings -> Tabs -> MyTab -> Shell .

  • What if I want to run different commands on for one tab?

  • Just made the suggestion a bit clearer, my bad. To be on the safe side, place the commands which you would like Console2 to run in double quotes, like console2 -t MyTab -r "ipconfig & dir C:\Windows | more"

  • Unfortunately you suggestion does not work, have you tried it?

  • Yap, it's triple-checked before being posted. It may sound daft, but I just wonder if there is a tab called MyTab in your Console Settings -> Tabs. If not, Console2 won't launch properly.

  • Yes there is a MyTab, there is nothing in Shell field and in Startup dir there is a dir that opens up when I run: console2 -t MyTab -r "ipconfig" but ipconfig command does not run.
