Touch scroll ConEmu under Windows + some other stuff

So.. I have my Win8 tablet and I have all kinds of dev environments installed on it. It can handle a lot, believe me.

I was using for a long time a combination of git bash console + increased console size in the default Windows’ console settings: rows and cols. I really appreciate the git bash here option.

These days I stumbled upon ConEmu, received many good reviews about it and decided to try it.

I am still discovering its features but so far I removed/unregistered the git bash context menus and use the same environment inside ConEmu – it really gives you everything you need: I have the git bash console inside, again a console window without horizontal limit of the characters, easy select, copy and paste, etc.

However if you like me want to use it for scrolling on the tablet you have to use two fingers. You will be in selection mode with one finger. If you prefer you can disable the selection mode for sh.exe in the settings – to not accidentally copy a part of the text in the console while you are trying to scroll.
