You can use the Free portable edition of Mobaxterm although the Professional Edition for $$ has extra features of course.

Some complex code doesn’t work as well as in Cygwin with full package updates, but it normally works well enough.

I use gitBash. If you have git for Windows then you get it out of the box.

Is there any Software that doesn't need install like putty available to provide Unix Shell capabilities. I used cygwin earlier and even setup wirh rlwrap as been demo by Tanel and using Terminator to setup all scripts for Database monitoring. Now company put new security updates that stop the Cygwin access and so looking for some alternative as the laptop has no Admin privilege to install any software.  

Even software that needs to pay for the license is fine or any other way to make the Putty interface better like cygwin or unix emulator so that I can do setup on one of the database server with all monitoring setup and can connect using tnsnames.ora for all server. Currently simple putty is not that friendly.  

Thanks for sharing the details
