Is it possible to hide emacs-w32 console window?

Sorry, I don't know what console window you're talking about.  Exactly how do
you start emacs-w32?  I start it by typing 'emacs-w32 &' in a Cygwin terminal
(mintty), and there's no console window.

Sorry I forgot to add this detail.

I use Win+R emacs-w32 ENTER.

You can avoid the console window by using Cygwin's run.exe. See the shortcut for the X server for an example of this. (You do get a brief console window, but it immediately disappears.)

I don't know if it is possible to link emacs-w32 with --subsystem=windows.

I don't either, and I'm not interested in experimenting with this without knowing what all the consequences would be.
