- Subject: Pining Cygwin in Windows 7?
I just installed Cygwin on my new system, which runs Windows 7. There's
a feature in Win7 similar to QuickLinks that I've been using to "pin" my
applications to the task bar for a quick start. I'd like to do the same
for Cygwin, but since it starts as batch file, all the "pin" function
does is give me a DOS prompt.
Has anyone encountered this before, and devised a fix for it?
I think I can just whip up a short C program to execute bash like the
batch file does, and then just pin that executable. But does anyone
know of something better?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
