To get ConEmu and Git integrated checkout my previous post Configuring ConEmu and Putty.

Install Git for Windows. If you look in the install directory you should see a file:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\Git Bash.lnk

Right click on that file, hit Properties and copy the Target string:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i

Open ConEmu settings, create a new Task and enter the following:

  • Task name: Git
  • Task parameters: blank
  • Commands: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i

Click 'Save settings'. Now if you click the "Create new console" button - you'll see an entry for both "Putty" and "Git" and can open both in individual tabs.
