conemu is pretty awesome, but is there a way to set a color profile for each individual shell? Like for powershell it uses one theme, for a cmd prompt it uses another, for putty another and so on.

Of course yes, except of putty. Putty is NOT a shell, but only child GUI application you may run inside ConEmu tab or pane.

  • using "-new_console:P:PaletteName" (look at "About/Help" dialog - Win+Alt+A)
  • using "App distinct" settings, choose color palette there
  • @Maximus Hi! I use conEmu v. 14 a created a complete color scheme, but everytime a open a new tab or start application, it shows the the prefered scheme but immediately changes to something else. How can I resolve this annoying problem? Thanks

  • @XinHua You need to create an issue at the project tracker. With your configuration attached (ConEmu.xml) and description what are you running.
