I am trying to download the Rsubread package through cygwin, but I can't find Subread in the packages offered in cygwin. Is there any other way to download Rsubread on my windows based computer?

Thanks in advance!

If you download R from cygwin, you can then download subread through bioconductor on the R package running on cygwin... once R is installed, type R, enter and you'll have R up and running. install rsubread through bioconductor as you would normally

I also found the linux shell downloadable from the windows 10 store (search for ubuntu) very easy to use for Rsubread by installing R and then using Rsubread through bioconductor!

Dear A, you could consider posting this as an answer instead of just as a comment.
