Your expectations of my willingness to engage are not correctly
calibrated.  I'm not going to go out of my way to communicate with
someone who has put Cygwin observations on an external website.  And,
I'm not going to educate you in how the Windows console works.  You have
plenty of places on the internet available to you for that.

I already told you (and you've chosen to ignore) how you might be able
to make things work.  You should stop focusing on your perception of "my
attitude" and just work on improving your understanding.
