In Cygwin, it is installed as the default 'Cygwin Terminal'. For MSYS (old), select the msys-mintty package in the installer. (Or from MinGW, install the package with mingw-get install mintty.) For MSYS2, mintty is installed by default, or it can be installed later with the command pacman -S mintty.
Run setup-x86_64.exe any time you want to update orinstall a Cygwin package for 64-bit windows. The signature for setup-x86_64.exe can be used to verify the validity ofthis binary.
Run setup-x86.exe any time you want to update orinstall a Cygwin package for 32-bit windows. The signature for setup-x86.exe can be used to verify the validity ofthis binary.
When installing packages for the first time, the setup programdoes not install every package. Only the minimal base packagesfrom the Cygwin distribution are installed by default, which takes up about 100 MB.
Clicking on categories and packages in the setup program package installationscreen allows you to select what is installed or updated.
Individual packages like bash, gcc, less, etc.are released independently of the Cygwin DLL, so the Cygwin DLL version is notuseful as a general Cygwin release number. The setup programtracks the versions of all installed components and provides the mechanismfor installing or updating everything available from this site forCygwin.
Once you've installed your desired subset of the Cygwin distribution,the setup program will remember what you selected, so re-running itwill update your system with any new package releases.
On Windows Vista and later, the setup program will check bydefault if it runs with administrative privileges and, if not, will tryto elevate the process. If you want to avoid this behaviour and installunder an unprivileged account just for your own usage, runsetup with the --no-admin option.
A: Run the setup program and select the package you want to add.
Tip: if you don't want to also upgrade existing packages, select 'Keep' at thetop-right of the package chooser page.
A: Yes and no. The setup program understandscommand-linearguments which allow you to control its behavior and chooseindividual packages to install. While this provides some functionalitysimilar to such tools as apt-get or yum it is not asfull-featured as those package managers.
A: The basic reason for not using a more full-featured package manager is thatsuch a program would need full access to all of Cygwin's POSIX functionality. Thatis, however, difficult to provide in a Cygwin-free environment, such as exists onfirst installation. Additionally, Windows does not easily allow overwriting ofin-use executables so installing a new version of the Cygwin DLL while a packagemanager is using the DLL is problematic.
A: You do not want to do this! This will install an enormous number of packagesthat you will never use, including debuginfo and source for every package.
If you really must do this, clicking on the 'Default' label next to the'All' category to change it to 'Install' will mark every Cygwin package forinstallation. Be advised that this will download and install tens of gigabytesof files to your computer.

MinTTY is a fantastic piece of software that smoothes some of the edges of the Windows command line experience. You should use it and here's why:
Installing MinTTY is trivial: just select the mintty package in Cygwin's setup.exe and point your Cygwin shortcut to
C:cygwinbinmintty.exe -. The trailing hyphen is important.
By default, MinTTY copies on select and pastes on right-click, just like Linux. However, you can make it behave like a typical Windows application and show a context menu upon right-click.
I won't bother explaining how difficult copying and pasting is in standard Windows consoles.
MinTTY supports arbitrary window sizes, including maximized. Enough said.
Because MinTTY is based on PuTTY, it doesn't display output strangely when running emacs over ssh, among other examples.
Anyone who has done command line work on Windows has surely noticed that, when a program spews output to the console, system performance nosedives. Sometimes, even the mouse cursor skips, making it hard to kill the program responsible.
MinTTY doesn't have this problem -- it uses minimal CPU, even under heavy load.
Five years ago, I was diagnosed with repetitive stress injuries from programming. To make matters worse, I get obsessive when I work, and nothing can pull me away from the keyboard.
RSI Guard keeps my wrists and elbows pain-free by enforcing short, periodic breaks. However.. years of exposure to RSI Guard has caused me to discover its holes. For example, native console windows bypass RSI Guard's protection, so when RSI Guard blocked keyboard and mouse input, I would quickly switch to typing in a console window and continue to work. Because MinTTY is a standard Windows application, it closes this backdoor.
Open a fresh Cygwin and type
notepad & followed by
exit. The Cygwin console sticks open until you close Notepad.
In MinTTY, you can always close the window, no matter how many background processes you've started.
Pure convenience: Alt-F2 opens a new terminal. No need to reach for the mouse.
For rapidly paging through previous lines of output, you can press Shift-PageUp and Shift-PageDown, just like the Linux console. Another huge convenience.
