Is there any way I tell tell emacs to use egrep through a cygwin shell not a cmd shell?

Try customizing shell-file-name.


I have tried for an hour now
(custom-set-variables
  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 '(pr-gs-command "c:\\Program Files\\gs\\gs8.56\\bin\\gswin32c.exe")
 '(pr-gv-command "C:\\Program Files\\Ghostgum\\gsview\\gsview32.exe")
 '(ps-paper-type "a4")
 '(w32shell-add-emacs-to-path nil)
 '(w32shell-cygwin-bin "C:\\cygwin\\bin")
 '(w32shell-dynamic-complete-sync-dirs t)
 '(w32shell-msys-bin "C:\\msys\\1.0\\bin")
'(w32shell-shell (quote cygwin) nil nil "this was cygwin and egrep used dos path .now is cmd"))
(custom-set-faces

 )
(require 'w32shell)
(setq shell-file-name "cygwin")
(setq w32shell-set-shell "cygwin")


yet still in the <tools> menu <w32 shells> are listed in the following order
cmd
cygwin
msys
