Can I have a Windows command shell window?

Windows 7, Webstorm 5, Mercurial, Smartclient library

While I am developing I have a Windows shell (cmd.exe) window open so that I can run batch files that that provide test inputs to the system and interact with source control. This is really annoying because it uses up screen space. I would really like to have this shell inside a Webstorm tab where I can hide when it is not in use.

Tools > Run Command > cmd.exe

does give me a shell but it seems only to have basic input/output not autocompletion and shell history.

Can I have simple Webstorm tab containing my command shell?
