Making Cmder Findable by Windows Search

This is just a short reminder for myself. I just found myself reinstalling Windows and thus also my favourite console, Cmder. I didn’t remember what to do to make it findable by Windows search, so here’s how:

1. Add path to PATH environment variable

This can be either for your specific user or for the whole system.

Environment variables dialogue
Path variable edit dialogue

2. Log off and on again

3. Voilà!

Win+ cmder

Windows start menu showing Cmder
