Console is the terminal of the K Desktop Environment, which runs on Unix-like operating systems. It supports tabs, history, printing and bookmarks. Some applications, such as Konqueror and Kate use console as KPart. Console was the first complete rewrite terminal emulation, and not built like most other to xterm or xvt.


The console can load multiple instances within a window in tabs. In addition, a scroll bar, a menu bar and the tab bar can be turned on and off as needed by the user. Similarly, font, color schemes, and keyboard mapping can be set.
