Sure. Create a windows shortcut to bash.exe, open the properties. In
"Target", after C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe, add
--login -i -c "<your command here in bash syntax>"
and you can then assign a key-combination to the shortcut (as for any other
windows shortcut) by clicking in "Shortcut key" and typing your
The "your command here part" can be any valid shell commands, or you can
just pass in the path to a script you want run. (Remember to either chmod +x
the script first, or to use the 'source' bash builtin to execute it).
You'll probably want to change the "Start in" dir to your homedir or /tmp or
somewhere similar, depending on your needs.
