The best waya is to run Vifm inside tmux or GNU screen and then run :screen command to activate integration with terminal multiplexers.

You can also set 'vicmd' option to gvim & which is the easiest for Windows.

Solved here. Might depend on console settings and/or Windows version, because a different solution produces desired result for me.

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
