Essentials

Run the bash for this as administrator. The shortcut is located in the Git installation folder. "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Git”.

Good Setting for the layout are:

  • Screnn buffer size
    • Width: 160
    • Height: 3000
  • Windows size
    • Width: 160
    • Height: 75

A detail explanation could be found under Unable to modify git bash Windows shortcut - Full Instructions

Additonals

With the Console enhancement project (Console Enhancement Project at SourceForge) it’s a lot more fun to work with console.

Settings for console App

  • Activate “Save settings to user directory”
  • On tree node “Console” set the Window and Buffer sizes like above
  • On tree node “Appearance” set “Snap to desktop edges” with a distance of 10 pixels
  • On tree node “Appearance > More …” set Alpha canals for transparency to 30 for the active and 150 for the inactive window
  • On tree node “Behavior” activate “Copy on select”

Settings for Git Shell

  1. Open the settings with Edit > Settings…
  2. Goto tre node “Tabs”
  3. Press “Add”-Button to add a new tab specification which you could later use
  4. Name it “Git Bash”
  5. Specify the Shell, for instance with
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe --login –i
  6. Setup your mostly used directory which should be the active directory, for instance
    c:\Projects
  7. Setup a cursor style, I like XTem and Pulse in grey

Remarks

Have a look at the tree node “Hotkeys > Mouse” to get a understanding how to select some text parts in the console window

Hi Marko,
Nice looking console. Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately after following your instructions to add the Git Bash tab, when I try to run it with File | Tab | Git Bash, the tab appears and quickly disappears. Any idea what I'm missing to get it working?

Thanks!
Mike

Hi Mike, I fixed it by setting the shell to:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe /c ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i"

I found it on this web site:
