Does anyone know how to set mintty to use zsh on the newest cygwin install?
Just edit your
/etc/passwd and replace
If your shortcut is using mintty.exe then change it to:
C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico /bin/zsh --login
Just to complement David C Bishop's answer, now more likely to be using cygwin64. (Create a Windows desktop shortcut, and paste following in as the 'location')
C:\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico /bin/zsh --login
