ConEmu is a powerful open-source terminal emulator for Windows. It allows users to easily create and manage multiple terminal sessions, with each session running a different application or shell. Unfortunately, there is a common problem that users experience with ConEmu: duplicate sessions.
When duplicate sessions occur, the same application or shell will be displayed twice in the ConEmu window and any input or output in one session will be mirrored in the other session. This can be frustrating and can lead to confusion and errors. Fortunately, there are a few solutions to this problem.
The first and most common solution is to simply restart ConEmu. This can be done by exiting the application and then re-opening it. This will reset the ConEmu environment and should remove any duplicate sessions.
The second solution is to use the “Sessions” menu in ConEmu. This menu allows you to manage the individual sessions within ConEmu. You can add, remove and rename sessions as well as set various options such as the font size, colors, and window size. If you find that you have duplicate sessions, you can delete the extra sessions and then re-add them.
The third solution is to use the “Taskbar” menu in ConEmu. This menu allows you to manage the tasks that are running in the ConEmu environment. If you find that you have duplicate tasks, you can stop and restart them individually. This should remove the duplicate sessions.
Finally, if none of the above solutions work, then it may be necessary to edit the ConEmu configuration file directly. This file is located in the “ConEmu” folder in the user’s home directory. If you are comfortable editing this file, then you can search for and delete any duplicate sessions that may be listed in the file.
In conclusion, duplicate sessions in ConEmu can be a frustrating problem. Fortunately, there are a few solutions to this problem, ranging from simple to complex. If the issue persists, then it may be necessary to edit the ConEmu configuration file directly. With the right knowledge, any IT administrator should be able to resolve this issue quickly and efficiently.
