If you cannot or don’t want to have a better Windows command line or you just wouldn’t feel comfortable using a Unix-type shell, you might be interested in Console, an enhancement to the Windows cmd.exe program which includes tabs, good text selection and a number of other interesting features. Console I’ve set my copy of Console up in such a way that I can use tabs with the same keyboard shortcuts that Firefox uses; a nice feature. After unpacking the zip with the binaries, just move all the files to a suitable directory in your PATH; that suffices as installation. Console keeps its configuration in a file called console.xml which is located in the folder containing the executable.
