This page needs cleanup. Particularly, the Console2 section. Refactor to standalone?

So. Freaking. Slow. I work-from-home (WFH) a lot, so this is an issue for me.
Back to console emulators, though. If I wanted to go nitpicking, both ConEmu and Console2 work less well over an RDP connection than the stock console, which is noticeable if you tend to remote into machines quite frequently. It’s not that they work badly, but Microsoft clearly spent a lot of time optimising the stock console to work well over RDP (or to have RDP work well with the stock console), so there is a bit of lag when scrolling. It doesn’t make either tool unusable but you notice it’s there.
“scroll lock” or, The Dreadful Up-Arrow Scrolling Nightmare
you can try to disable Use Scroll Lock for scrolling in Console Settings > Hotkeys.
i don’t even have a Scroll-lock button on my keyboard!
NOTE: by default, Console2 maps
Ctrl-C to a copy-selection command. This is great!
Unless you need to use
Ctrl-C to exit a process.
In which case, you’ll have to remap copy.

If you don’t want GnuWin32 available on the path (say, because the default windows
find command is required for builds), add it to the PATH as you call the shell command:
%comspec% /k set PATH=\path\to\GnuWin32\bin;%PATH%
