How can you change the default startup console of ConEmu?

Currently, when I start ConEmu, it opens a single tab with the default Windows command prompt, but I would like ConEmu to start PowerShell instead, and perhaps an administrative PowerShell console.


There is Startup settings page where user can choose one of the named Tasks (many shells are predefined already) or choose particular startup command line.

And of course, user can define his own Tasks or reorder existing.

  • Thanks. I did actually look for it for quite a while. Only I was expecting an option that says something like "startup console" or "startup shell". – Zoltán Jul 23 '14 at 8:12
  • Also, I would appreciate a more friendly tone, particularly from the author of the app. Kudos for the app though :) – Zoltán Jul 23 '14 at 8:13
  • This app is great but setting UI has to change. – localhoost Feb 3 '16 at 3:53
  • @emrah Really? And what do you suggest to change? – Maximus Feb 3 '16 at 9:13
  • @Maximus Don't get offensive. I can say many things about it but for the subject. People including myself don't think clicking category name to open sub section. As a proof this is asked and searched. Even i have done this before i had to search again. Designers usually insert a "general" sub menu at top of sections. BTW Kudos. – localhoost Feb 3 '16 at 10:15
