Cygwin Open Bash Prompt Here

Cygwin is a large collection of GNU and Open Source tools which provide functionality similar to a Linux distribution on Windows.

When you install Cygwin (of if you've already installed it, download it again and start setup again to run an update), make sure that you select the chere package under the "Shells" category.

After Cygwin is launched, open it up and type the command:

chere -i -t mintty
# if you don't choose it with the -t option,
# your "Bash Prompt Here" will use the same terminal as the Windows Command Prompt
chere -i

You should now see Cygwin open Bash Prompt Here in your folder's context menu
