I don't mean tabbed completion. I mean tabs like what firefox, chrome etc have, that you can switch between.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you're looking for a tabbed interface for multiple bash shells, right? If so, you could use Console2 to host your mingw windows. I use it for Cygwin and it works great! Just configure each tab in Console2 to start the MinGW bash shell.

yes, that's what I meant. I will try console2, Thanks. – Naveen Jan 12 '10 at 15:42

GNU screen would do what you want, but a quick Google search seems to indicate that there's not currently a Cygwin or mingw build of the tool.
