Laragon’s Terminal (Menu > Laragon > Terminal) extends the power of Cmder (which is built on top of ConEmu, Clink). Laragon adds some features to Cmder to make using the Terminal more fun:

  • Global hotkey: just press Ctrl + Alt + T, you can invoke the Terminal at anytime. After invoking, you can use the Ctrl + Alt + T or Ctrl + ` to quickly hide/show the Terminal.
  • Isolated environment: Many programs will run only on Laragon’s Terminal because they are isolated from the OS. You can add/delete them without any worries.
  • Extra hotkeys:
    • F11: Toggle Full screen
    • Ctrl + T: Create new tab (without confirmation)
    • Ctrl + Shift + T: Split active tab vertically
    • Ctrl + Shift + H: Split active tab horizontally
    • Ctrl + W: Delete previous word (In Cmder, it will close current tab)
    • Ctrl + Shift + W: Close current tab
    • Ctrl + Shift + Q: Close Terminal
    • Ctrl + Shift + 2: Make Terminal window transparent
    • Ctrl + Shift + 3…9: Reduce transparent
    • Ctrl + Shift + 1: Remove transparent
