Oh, my apologies. Yes, this feature is supposed to work "out-of-the-box"; that
explains why I (we) were wondering what the problem could be at your place.

You are doing fine now, providing us the "specifics" of your situation. Your
initial post lacked that info.

I am still using W7, and therefore I am afraid I cannot help you anymore. It
may be that Brian I. has some ideas - as far as I know, he is using W10.

I cannot say anything sensible about the 2 scripts you have executed. Sorry.

But I am afraid, that you may have to start from scratch again (reinstalling
W10) in order to find out under what circumstances the MinTTY feature starts
to fail. Yes, that would be a huge disappointment to you, I understand.

(these scripts do scare me a bit :-(
