as local package Directory.

"All", click on the word "default" so that it changes to "install".

It is a UNIX terminal which, by default, starts in the home diretory
"/home/<username>" of the UNIX-system emulated by Cygwin, where "/" is the root
directory of Cygwin. For example, if you have installed Cygwin in
"C:\cygwin64\", then the home Directory of Cygwin ca be found at
"C:\cygwin64\home\<username>", in the Windows system.
