#Cygwin "Bash Prompt Here" in Windows Explorer Context Menu

If you're using cygwin quite a lot under windows, just like I do, you would love to have a Windows Exploere context menu entry that sais: Bash Prompt Here but please without the regedit HKEY... yadda yadda yadda...

Here we go, run the cygwinsetup.exe again and click next until you get the package list, then install the package:


Then run cygwin.bat with run as administrator, then enter:

chere -i

Jipppieee, from now on, you've got your context menu entry...

Hope you enjoy that as much as I do!


P.S.: Additional hint, once opened, change the default settings for that window just as you would normaly do for dos prompts :)
