Docker Quickstart Terminal for Docker for Windows


I would like to create the same we have in Docker Toolbox: Docker Quickstart Terminal.

My issue that when I execute docker-machine ls - table is empty, when my Docker is started and I am able to run containers using docker-compose. Also docker run command works well.

Could you please help how to do it?

After installing Docker for Windows, you can use Docker from any terminal that you like, eg. cmd.exe or powershell or Git-bash or Cygwin. You don’t have to worry about docker-machine, Docker, docker-compose and other Docker tools will just work.

This post has a few more details: Isn't the MobyLinuxVM the default docker-machine?
