I've installed the Git for Windows (from git-scm.com). I'd like to set the initial position of the Git Bash so in the minttyrc file I've added a line Position=100,50 but that seems not work. The Windows itself always position the window at the random coords. Is the a working way to make the Git Bash window be always placed at the position i choose?

If they do not help, use instead of minttyrc the positional command-line parameters of mintty available for your software.
