There is a program, such as the ColorConsole
, which can also execute console commands.
There is also a standard Windows console, under Linux and MAC there are similar tools that are provided in the operating system. The Windows 10, 8.1, 7.0 is called command prompt, the executable file is cmd.exe and is located on Windows in C:\Windows\System32\
However, these consoles usually execute the standard interpreter. On Windows, it is not just the cmd.exe that serves as the command prompt, there is still the power shell (powershell.exe).
But any application without graphical output, or made only as text, is a console application. It has nothing to do with gaming, such as the game consoles, X-BOX, Nintendo Switch (Wii-U), Playstation 1,2,3,4 ;-)
