Configuring Console2 with Cygwin

When using Windows, Console2 does a great job of managing my console windows, but it’s not intuitive how to configure it with Cygwin (my console of choice).  It’s not that hard to simply get Cygwin to open in Console2, but it can be tricky to get it open to a startup directory.

Here are the steps to get Console2 to open to a specific startup directory:

Launch Console2

Open settings through Edit > Settings

Click tabs from the tree on the left

Click the ‘Add’ button to add a new tab

Set the title to ‘Cygwin’ (or another appropriate name)
