I am using Far Manager and Conemu. I browse through far manager and i want to edit a file with Far Manager's F4 command (External Editor) but i want it to open the file inside a new Tab in Conemu.

For e.g.

I have selected Sublime Text 3 as the external editor inside Far Manager, when i press F4, the open is opened but it opens in Sublime Text 3 Editor and not inside Conemu Tab.

Is there a way to open the file inside Conemu's Tab using Sublime text as the editor in the new tab ?


Add -new_console argument to your editor command line. Read about in Wiki.


 Notepad.exe "!\!.!" -new_console
  • Where can i find the !\!.! command ? – Ibn Saeed Jan 4 '14 at 18:46
  • Where? Have you read Far Manager F1? – Maximus Jan 4 '14 at 19:36
  • Yes, but i guess i might have missed it. – Ibn Saeed Jan 5 '14 at 4:28
  • F1, "Special symbols". All there. "!\" and "!.!" – Maximus Jan 5 '14 at 19:04
  • i did use those but i did not know that we could use multiple symbols inside double quotes. – Ibn Saeed Jan 6 '14 at 4:23
