Use bash instead of cmd Intellij/Android Studio/WebStorm/PHPStorm in Windows

If you love bash & Linux command but forced to use Windows for development, you will love this trick.

The console is colored like on Linux and autocomplete works way better than cmd / PowerShell.

Requirement: Git installed with git-bash

Open Application, go to File > Settings, open Tools > Terminal

Set “Shell Path” to C:\Program Files\Git\bin\bash.exe

That’s it. Enjoy bash command under windows

Tested working with Intellij/Android Studio/WebStorm/PHPStorm and should under any Intellij based IDE.
