|YaK:: Fixing the default Windows Shell (cmd.exe) with Console and Cygwin
|[Changes] [Calendar] [Search] [Index] [PhotoTags]
I have two major problems with it. First, I can't resize the window, or manipulate it in nice and reasonable manner. Second, I'm used to linux and mac shells based off of bash and I hate having to switch between a dos like shell.
So to solve this solution I use Console and Cygwin. Console is a better shell window and Cygwin gives a unix-like environment for Windows.
Here's how I got them to work together
You should see Cygwin running within Console. The window is resizable in the way you expect it to be; just hover your mouse over the lower right hand corner and resize to your content. You can even create new tabs and press ctrl+tab to cycle through your Cygwin tabs.
