DOS is an Operating system that's been dead for years and it didn't
have any windows at all.

So you "bring up" a "DOS" window, which in fact is a Cmd.exe or
Command.com window, by typing "Cmd" or "Command" or by double clicking
a shortcut to Cmd.exe/Command.com?!
So simply double click the shortcut to bash or to cygwin.bat.
