Interesting tip: when pressing shift and rightclicking on any folder within the explorer, the additional option open command window here appears in the context menu starting a console with the current folder as its starting point.
However, the better console is Console2. It enables to resize the console window, use colors as well as tabs for different console types. So you can use the powershell, normal command line and cygwin within one console2 app.
My current problem is the fact that when starting my tomcat server from a powershell within a Console2 tab, a new command window is opened which is outside the Console2 application and only the normal command window. Any suggestions?
