Why powershell and cmd.exe use the git config file is in C:\c\Users\xxx\.gitconfig?

I have installed git on my windows pc, when I run git config --global using powershell or cmd.exe, it’s writing to this file C:\c\Users\xxx\.gitconfig.

While when I run the git config command in git-bash, it’s operating this file:

  • How to turn off Git warnings “LF will be replaced by CRLF”?

  • jitpack.io failed to resolve github repo
  • Git bisect with merged commits
  • What are the differences between .gitignore and .gitkeep?
  • Where the c\ folder coming from?? I don’t get it.

    How can I tell powershell and cmd.exe use the same file as git-bash??

    I find the cause of the issue: I installed cygwin before, and it sets the HOME environment variable on my pc to c\Users\xxxx, that’s why powershell and cmd.exe is locating the file in that folder.
