Command console retro design, but with some extra features

Post by manuel »

Hi!

In windows 95 and others editions of windows, the command console include a toolbar, this feature enabled make some actions at press the buttons. This feature not exists in the current console and this is a problem, but requiere select the text and click with second button of mouse to lauch certain actions.
In have a laptop that not work second button of mouse (mouse pad in the laptop), i use one button from keyboard to simulate the second button of mouse, but this console feature not work. I think that is good idea add the toolbar of old console to reactos console to supply the problems that i talk, i attach a screenshot from the old console, thanks.

There is a much better open source console called console2. Console is a Windows console window enhancement. Console features include: multiple tabs, text editor-like text selection, different background types, alpha and color-key transparency, configurable font, different window styles

Perhaps this could be brought within ReactOS?

cool, It would good that the native console application implements some features from console 2, or that this will replace the console, I see it difficult.
But this application not work correctly in reactos yet :( https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-9670

Console2 hasn't been updated in 2 years. ConsoleZ is actively maintained fork of Console2 - https://github.com/cbucher/console#consolez

Console in either form would be a fitting addition to Reactos and would stand out as a significant improvement over 'real' windows.

I have a nice icon available for both...
