run git bash terminal

Step 1: Add a task

    Right click on the window title bar -> Settings -> Startup -> Tasks
    click the '+' button
    Set the title to Git
    Default task for new console -> check
    Task parameters = /DIR "C:\Users\kkusuman"
    Commands - "C:\Program Files\Git\Git Gui\bin\bash.exe" --login -i
    Move the {Git} task to the top by repeatedly clicking on the "Up" button
    Save settings

In the above, change the title, start directory, bash path accordingly.

Step 2: Set up "git bash" like colors

    In the Settings window ->
    Features -> Colors -> Schemes -> <xterm> -> Save settings

Step 3: Auto restore previous session

    In the Settings window ->
    Startup -> Auto save/restore opened tabs -> select -> Save settings

Step 4: unbind ctrl-v

By default ctrl-v is bound to "Paste first line of clipboard contents, autoconvert paths for cygwin's appllications (ignored in Far)". This messes up with vim which uses ctrl-v to enter into visual mode.

    Settings -> Keys & Macro -> unbind Ctrl-v
