```I've noticed that if I install a right-click shell entry via "chere" and use "minty" as the terminal that I cannot start a shell on a network share.  This is true regardless of which of the following two installation commands I execute:

chere -I -t mintty -s bash
chere -i -2 -t mintty -s bash

A related clue is that when using a mintty terminal I cannot see network shares in /cygdrive, but when using the default chere shell I can see the network shares mapped to drives (e.g. /cygdrive/y/...).

Any suggestions?

```Can you clarify which isn't working:

a) a network share mapped to a drive letter, e.g N:\my\network\location
b) network share accessed via \\ e.g. \\server\path\my\network\location

I think a) should always work.

```
Are you right clicking on a directory and selecting the menu item, or right clicking a blank spot in the RH pane? The two result in different logic, with the latter having to guess it's a network path. You may be able to figure out what's going on by adding a few echos to /bin/xhere
```
