I like the Git Shell because it allows me to run popular linux commands in my windows environment. My IDE allows me to run command-line programs inside an embedded console, which I also quite like. I was hoping I could use the Git Shell from inside this console, but when I run the command as specified the shortcut icon it created,

C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\GitHub\GitHub.appref-ms --open-shell

It just opens a new command prompt rather than using the current one. Is there a way to force it to use the current prompt?
