Parameter to launch cmd.exe in legacy mode
I have console applications that require legacy mode, but I want to use the new mode everywhere else...but it'd be really nice to not have to go to the console properties, check a box, and restart. Is there a way to launch my console applications with a parameter or *something* that would force that instance into legacy mode but leave other console sessions in the new mode? Please?

As found at:
under section "About settings", the HKCU\Console registry key is discussed.
You create a subkey for each application that you want the global legacy console to be enabled for. Below I show how I did this for my favorite text-mode file & directory manager at ztree.com
