When a new console is created in ConEmu, its tab is named ConEmu version [processorArchitecture] (e.g. ConEmu 130722 [64]), unless created using the -cur-console:t:TabName command-line argument.

I tried looking in the Settings dialog, but I couldn't find any way to specify a default title for new tabs, if they are created, for example, by running "cmd.exe" from the Windows Run dialog (and, of course, having the Force ConEmu as default terminal for console applications setting turned on).

Is there any way of setting this? Maybe through the registry, or via some undocumented setting or option?

EDIT: I found a possible way -- setting it on the Tab templates, in the Features\Tabs setup page.

This won't actually set the default Tab Title (i.e., if I use "%s" on the template, I'll still get the default title I mentioned above), but it will cause the Tab button to show whatever was set in the template, which was the original intent.

  • What do you want to see in default tab name? – Maximus Jul 26 '13 at 19:30
  • Nothing specific... something like "Console", for example. It would be interesting to be able to customize that default name somewhere in the Settings, though. – Cobra Jul 27 '13 at 23:24
  • Are you sure this problem exist in current Preview and Alpha builds? If so, run ConEmu /log, reproduce the problem with tab title, make screenshot and attach screenshot and produced log files. – Maximus Sep 21 '13 at 23:02
  • I've been using the workaround I mentioned in my edit, so I haven't really tested beyond that. And I didn't think it was a problem or a bug to begin with, just a "nice-to-have" feature. I'd mark this question as answered if there were any answers to it, but there aren't... :) – Cobra Sep 23 '13 at 5:23
  • That is looks like a bug, actually. Or I've misunderstand you. "ConEmu version" may be displayed during initialization only. After that, it changes to starting command line. By design. That is why I asked about screenshot and log. – Maximus Sep 23 '13 at 9:08
