I am currently using CYGWIN, Git Bash, and Msysgit, plus Putty and I want to open a new window at the same location from one to another. Is there a command similar to start . or explorer . to open CYGWIN from Git Bash, or Msysgit from CYGWIN?

Not sure how ssh ties into this. You want to open an explorer window? From a remote login via ssh? or what...? –  Marc B Nov 5 '11 at 5:04
    
cmd /c start . would be answering cygwin to cmd. I'm trying to git-bash to cygwin –  Graphic Agenda Nov 6 '11 at 11:28

You can try to create script in your PATH to run cygwin shell directly. something about "start c:/cygwin/bin/sh"

In cygwin bash, doing explorer . does open a new explorer window wherever you are at the time.
