Starting from a Windows Command Prompt

Starting from a Windows Command Prompt, and using a syntax recommended
from years ago I still start a bash shell with
start /wait bin\bash (i.e. not just bin\bash)
and a mintty shell with
start bin\mintty (i.e. not just bin\mintty)
and yet experiment shows that both simplified forms in brackets "work".
Am I gaining / losing anything by sticking with the older longer
syntax, or can I just dive in, as in brackets?
Thank you!
