    Combining multiple program windows into a single window?


    I have six command prompt windows which I'd like to be able to divide equally across my monitor and also maximise and minimise as a single window; is that possible?

    I start my programs from .bat files, then I get several CMD windows open. Using ConEmu would require me to do a lot more manual starting of these programs within ConEmu in order to work. What I'm looking for would be useful in other situations as well, when working with two or three windows side be side. Currently when I do so, if I use a different program, I then need to click on all three program icons on the task bar to get them to return to the front. If I could put them all into one virtual window, I'd be able to minimise them and bring them back up in unison.

    Hey THX1138,
    How about something like this - Use Multiple Tabs in the Windows Command Prompt

    Thanks but I'd really like to see them all at once and not have to switch between them.

    That reads like the Task View button on the Task Bar that allows virtual desktops. Create a virtual desktop, move the cmd windows onto it, switch back and forth between virtual and normal desktops.

    Thanks; it's a good work around.

    When switching between virtual desktops, you can use the hotkey combo: win+ctl+left or right arrow key to switch instead of clicking the icons in the taskbar twice.
