I just use ConEmu or Console.  I had a license to PromptPal, but didn't upgrade after I found those.

Are those, these?
https://conemu.github.io/
https://sourceforge....et/projects/console/

I was interested to read ConEmu's comments about the difference between being a console and a shell; still not sure I fully understand it.  Truth to tell, when I want a command line, I generally use TCC/LE.  Invoking it pops up what appears to be a console, aiding confusion.

There are also:

PowerCmd, payware but apparently not updated since 2012.

and

ColorConsole by the author of Q-Dir.  Free and portable, but I'm not sure how much power it has.

Yes, those are indeed the pair.  And within them, I run Powershell, MSys, Cmd, etc.  They're basically the same as Promptpal.  They aren't a shell in and of themselves, they're just an enhancement to shells that already exist.  Those others that you list fall into the same category.  Shells would be Powershell, MSys, Cmd, Bash, Cygwin, etc.
