How do I change the default location for Git Bash on Windows?
I am using Git on Windows 7 and access my repositories through Git Bash. How can I change the default location that Git Bash opens in a convenient folder when I start it?
It's somewhat time consuming to navigate to
htdocs, and then a specific folder. Is there a way to change the configuration file to have it open elsewhere? Or would it be possible to write a
.sh file to do this?
Unfortunately Git Bash won't open my
htdocs folder shortcut on my desktop, and it takes using
cd 5 times to get to my desired directory.
After installing msysgit I have the
Git Bash here option in the context menu in Windows Explorer. So I just simply navigate to the directory and then open Bash right there.
I also copied the default
Git Bash shortcut to the desktop and edited its
Start in property to point to my project directory. It works flawlessly.
