Using Console2 with PowerShell and PowerCLI

I may be a late comer to this app but there is a cool free app here called Console2.  I am now using it for the quick work I need to do in PowerCLI and PowerShell, the stuff I dont need to save or need an editor for.

Its great as a portable app, I have it in my DropBox folder and its syncd between my PC’s as well as being on a USB key so I can use it from anywhere.

I like the way you can resize the window and it resizes the buffer and the copy and paste is also enhanced from the normal console.

I have packaged my settings and logos up so you too can see what I see, just download the settings file from below and Console2 from here and extract them into the same folder.

    Seems pretty cool, but doesn’t seem to work when trying to output to the Out-GridView 🙁

    Thanks Alan! I’ve installed it and liking it so far. I especially like being able to have separate sessions for Posh, PowerCLI, UCSPowerTool. yes, I added a tab for UCSPowerTool! There may be a cleaner way to do it but this worked for me. I’ll be creating a background and doing some icon referencing soon.
