Just stumbled upon a simple but really useful cygwin command —

“cygstart .”

Typing this command will do something simple, but really nice. It will open an explorer window at the your current directory. Seems so simple and dumb, but when you tend to juggle a lot of explorer windows, and tend to use cygwin frequently, this is a nice way to help speed things up!
