DOS is an Operating system that's been dead for years and it didn't 
have any windows at all.

So you "bring up" a "DOS" window, which in fact is a Cmd.exe or window, by typing "Cmd" or "Command" or by double clicking 
a shortcut to Cmd.exe/!

So simply double click the shortcut to bash or to cygwin.bat.
