The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.19.0-1

I still haven't learned how to make it start on Win8.1 or 10:
But I don't see it opening an X display, and the taskbar icon
after a few seconds.  May be missing the important user advice.

Have you looked for the xwin-xdg-icon in your hidden icons?  It's a
black C superimposed over a green X.


The icon stays up in the hidden icons. but seems to have little use.

Don't you get a menu when you click on it?

That menu has the option to shut down xserver or view documentation but
not to open an xterm.

I don't think we're talking about the same icon. The one I referred to is a black C superimposed over a green X, and it has many options to start programs, including XTerm (under System Tools). It's started by the xwin-xdg-icon program, which in turn is started by /etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc (unless you have a ~/.startxwinrc that overrides it). Does 'ps' show that xwin-xdg-icon is running?
