::>chere adds a "bash here" context menu just fine. However:
::>1) You have to click on a folder icon, clicking in a folder

::Thanks for the report. Now how did that go unnoticed? More explicit instructions
::to reproduce:
::1) In the LH pane of Explorer, select a folder with subdirectories
::   (eg c:\windows).
::2) In the RH pane, right click a subdirectory and select Bash here.
::   (eg system32).
::Bash will start in the parent directory (c:\windows)

Wow, was that a bug?
I thought that was the chere's feature,
which I'm now got used to... oh well ;-)

::A known workaround is to specify -1 (that's a one) when invoking chere. However,
::as noted in the documentation this won't work properly if you use ash or tcsh.
::Or if you try to open a network location.
::I'm restructuring the script at the moment and have a fix in mind. Hopefully it
::will be ready for release sometime soon.
::chere maintainer

Big THANK YOU for creating and maintaining chere for us.
