Had some trouble finding an answer to this, maybe I was wording it wrong. Here it is in case there is another curious party.
To change the shell that you use do the following:
- Click on the cog in the upper right of the GitHub gui
- Directly under
Clone Paththere is an option:
- Select the shell you want to use when you go to start>git shell
- Click Save
Now when you select Git Shell from your start menu it will open Git Bash.
