Two tiny Cygwin shell scripts may be of use. Each script has a single
active line, which I include here (to try these from the command line,
of course replace $1 with your desired argument):My desktop is empty and I keep nothing under C:\Documents and Settings
nor "My Documents". In fact I've hacked them out of my registry. I have
C:\Home\$USER (known to Cygwin as ~$USER) and no "My Documents"
anywhere. And again, my desktop has nothing on it.
1. To quickly find files and directories in "My Documents" and Desktop
(down to a certain depth):
find "/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/$USER/Desktop" \
"/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/$USER/My Documents" \
-maxdepth 3 | grep "$1"
2. To open an Explorer window in a specified directory (given in
Cygwin style), or to open a document in the proper Windows application:They're are lots of methods for this. Indeed simply type "explorer ."
works! Need it shorter "alias e=explorer" then "e ."!
/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/explorer `cygpath -w "$1"`

Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my
underwear. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom.
