I have largely replaced usage of windows explorer with a cygwin shell. One thing
is cumbersome however: when I encounter, say, a .doc file in a directory, it
would be nice that I could "launch" this file with the program associated under

Is this possible, for example via a utility program kind of "launch file.doc"?
