Sourcetree git bash

1. Is there a way to start Git bash without running sourcetree > actions > open in terminal ? 

2. Why isn't sourcetree installed on Program Files folder just like any other program? I tried to finf sourcetree folder to see if there is a "git-bash.exe" and surprised to see it was installed in C:\Users\myuser\AppData\Local\SourceTree\SourceTree.exe

 

Thanks!

Git Bash would usually be installed as part of your Git installation. You should be able to find it at:

%ProgramFiles%\Git\git-bash.exe

Or if Git has somehow ended up installed under Program Files (x86), then:

%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Git\git-bash.exe

The reason why SourceTree is installed under C:\users... is so you do not need Admin rights to install it and they changed the installer as of 1.9.x.x+1. Checkout this blog post about it: https://blog.sourcetreeapp.com/2016/11/16/adding-staged-updates-to-sourcetree/
