Mintty is a terminal emulator for Cygwin, based on code from PuTTY 0.60 by Simon Tatham and team.

It can be downloaded from here or it can be installed through Cygwin's setup.exe program, where it can be found in the Shells category. The Cygwin installer creates a shortcut for mintty in the Windows start menu.

Mintty should work on Windows 2000 and above. It gets tested on XP, Vista, and se7en. Similarly to other pty-based Cygwin terminals, however, mintty is not a full replacement for the Windows Command Prompt. While Windows console programs with simple text output are usually fine, interactive programs often do not work correctly, although sometimes there are workarounds.
