ConsoleZ is a fork of the great Console2 application.

This is a modified version of Console 2 for a better experience under Windows Vista/7/8 and a better visual rendering.

This fork supports:

 

 

    + Splitting Tabs into views (horizontally and vertically)
    + Grouping views (so input sent to one goes to all of them)
    + Windows Vista aero glass theme
    + Windows 7 jumplist
    + Windows 7 wallpaper positions and slideshow
    + Windows 8 wallpapers on dual screen
    + Zooming with Ctrl-Mouse
    + Quake style console animation
    + Strict monospace font rendering
    + Settable opacity of text background color
    + Full screen
    + and more...

How does this compare to Power Shell? I've transitioned to it from the weak command prompt.

You can run Powershell also within this. It got tab support. I can run Cygwin, cmd.exe and Powershell in three separate tabs, in a single window. Very handy. See this blog post about Console 2 : In Search of a Better Windows Console: Using Ansicon, Console2, and Git Bash. You continue to use powershell the way you used before, only in a smart UI/shell.

It's not an actual shell but more of a "wrapper" or a shell host, gives you more flexibility/features.  You can host whatever shell in it you want.  (Including PowerShell.)

How does this work with Windows 10?  Now that Windows 10 has an improved console host, is it compatible with that and it still able to improve on it (apart from the tabs)?
