I'm using cmder (https://github.com/cmderdev/cmder), and would like to be able to:

  • Configure entries to be automatically added the PATH when I start cmder
  • Configure environment variables that will be automatically set when I start cmder

How do I do this?

  • Is there a tabbed console app? Preferably with ctrl-tab or some other shortcut for switching between them? Windows really needs something like virtual tty's. I've seen some that have transparent windows and stuff, but that's a fluff feature that doesn't help. Edit: ok, I was thinking of conemu, which cmder appears to use. – Justin Goldberg Oct 27 '15 at 13:26

There is a user startup script in cmder\config\user-profile.cmd. To add items to your PATH, you can do the following;

@set PATH=<path_of_your_item>;%PATH%

    Not sure what version it changed, but now it seems to be cmder\vendor\init.bat. – Ludwik Dec 5 '15 at 12:19

    No, init.bat gets overwritten. Thats why its placed in the vendor folder. – d0x Feb 2 '16 at 10:30
  • Seems like you're right. – Ludwik Mar 6 '16 at 18:41
  • Do you know why this is happening to me? call does not source a .cmd file correctly: stackoverflow.com/questions/53523506/… – nephewtom Nov 28 '18 at 17:23
