This script uses a portable version of Cygwin when Windows Subsystem for Linux is not available to provide Linux bash emulation in Windows environments. It will open bash in the current directory of the target panel.

The script will work only if the Windows Subsystem for Linux is installed or if Cygwin portable is available in the same directory. It was designed to work with Cygwin Portable that is installed using this script:

The script works in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions and is available in the download below.

To set it up, either you will have to:

1- Download Portable Cygwin and install it in a separate directory.
2- Download the file available here.
3- Extract "LinuxShell.bat" from the downloaded file.
4- Copy "LinuxShell.bat" to the directory where you installed Portable Cygwin in the first step.
