Add color, tabs, and copy/paste to the Windows console

Color Console
If the stark black screen and white text of the Windows command console doesn't do it for you, you might want to check out Color Console. It's a free application that has all the features you'd expect from a basic Windows command prompt, and then some. For example, you can change your color scheme to yellow, orange, blue, or "matrix," which is a custom black and green skin.

While the color feature is nice, Color Console also has a few tricks that are a bit more functional. For example you can open up multiple console windows in a tabbed interface. And you can easily copy text from the console and paste it into any Windows application. There's even a beta print feature that will let you print the contents of a console window in full color.
